My own outstandingly named Window ManagerProject mention: Another post on Linux battery performance | reddit.com/r/archlinux | 2022-03-15
I am using my own WM MoonWM, which is based on dwm. It is probably not for everyone, but I think that goes for every WM (also it is probably not as stable as the "big" players). A common first WM is probably i3, but you really just have to try some until you find one that fits.

LEV Linux's window manager (a fork of dwm)Project mention: Major improvement in wrist fatigue? | reddit.com/r/dvorak | 2021-08-20
I switched to Vim a little above a year ago. It is a keyboard-driven text editor. You can't open it and just start typing like notepad, you open it then you have to press a command to start typing—i or a are the most simple. When you are done typing, you press escape to leave insert ("text-editing") mode and go back into visual ("navigation") mode. You then write changes and close the editor with ZZ. Now, a few months before I started using my new keyboard, I started using a tiling Window Manager—dwm—which allowed me to do most of my window management and navigation with the keyboard alone.
