Ognen Duzlevski

Senior tinkerer.


During the years I have used everything from a Commodore 64 to an IBM PC AT to a Commodore Amiga to ZX Spectrum to a 486 with Linux and the command line to Windows to a Mac. In between I also ran (and still run some) FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Tru64, Solaris, SunOS etc. Unix has always been my favorite OS and during the years running Linux and *BSD derivatives I have used almost every GUI/Window manager available. I have watched Gnome and KDE grow from a nice idea to terrible, bloated monsters that require more and more hardware to run. I have played with Mac OS X and found it restrictive and totally against the way I use a computer (I find Macs to be overpriced too for what they offer but that’s a different discussion). After so many different WMs, I came back to the old and trusty TWM. It is very light on resources, easy to configure, doesn’t try to do everything for me, it is out of my way and oh, did I say it is extremely light on the resources? I have an “older” laptop which is my main work machine - it has “only” 8GB of RAM and a quad-core Intel i7 CPU inside clocked at 1.73Ghz. Under any other WM, it labors, the fans are on blowing air and trying to cool the box but under TWM it hums and it is so happy…. ;-)

Here is a screenshot just to get the juices flowing…

TWM rules!
