Making modification to dwm is really easy

Dwm is the ‘dynamic window manager’ and is written in only 2000 lines of C code. This is quite nice. The size and the quality of the code is really good, so its really easy for me to make some modifications. The first modifications that I made, where for keys to start programs. F2 now starts the terminal and F4 starts a webbrowser. F3 starts gmrun, but I’m not sure if I need, or that I like it....

Another window manager

It seems I’m always on the lookout for new windowmanagers. Last year started using Ion3, which I really like. Yesterday I saw a windowmanager called dwm and it is written in about 2000 lines of C code. This is not useful in itself, but it makes it easier to understand the code and make some small modifications without actually understanding all of it. And 2000 lines isn’t that much either....
