Not saying this is a good idea

One big window for VcXsrv. awesomewm for a window manager. Mainly to manage maximized Emacs. There are easier ways to edit files in Windows and WSL. But it renders prettier fonts than VcXsrv with floating windows, so I think I’ll keep it. After I fix all the hotkeys, of course.

I used this post from Paul Silisteanu as a general guide, except apt install awesome awesome-extra for the awesomewm stuff.

There’s been way too much “it just works (more or less)” in my desktop life lately, so I started using the awesomewm tiling window manager.

Disappointingly, it works just fine.

Still, good chance to learn enough Lua to customize my setup. Looks like I’ll be revisiting Kitty terminal and a few other tools that have been on the task list for a while.
