  1. When I started experimenting with i3 last year, I did so to try to learn something new, to get a minimalist desktop going. Bc I got sick of every other DE having bugs and things that didnt work sitting on my system. I thought well, Ill try i3 until I break it. Ill never get used to these keyboard shortcuts, its too different, etc… But even before I got it set up the way I wanted it. I started to find myself using it as my main WM. Luke Smith's content on i3 was a big help for me to get started. And for some one who knows no code at all like me, the config file I found to be very clear and easy to tweak. Plus their documentation is awesome. I am still learning things with it, and I am by no means an expert at it, but I am still a year later using it as my daily driver. It allowed me to only install what I want with no bloat. And its blazing fast. Its tiling behavior does take some getting used to though. Ill give you guys that. But it works for me.
