    Project mention: help me choose a wm | reddit.com/r/qtile | 2023-03-16

    Just fyi, river is nothing like awesome, it's like bspwm. There was an attempt to make an awesome clone for wayland but it's no longer under development. Also, though it's not tiling, for completeness there's also labwc which is a wayland clone of openbox.
