xmonad reviews and quotes

``XMonad is by far the best Window Manager around. It's one of the reasons I stick with Linux. It’s stuffed with great features you can easily compose with your config file to get a fine-tuned behaviour.''

``I've started replacing machines that run Awesome, with XMonad, and I'm not looking back. Ever.''

R. Tyler Ballance, July 2009

``I have to say, the greatest thing about xmonad thus far is its insane stability. Even in wmii, I'd often find myself having to manually run wmiistartrc because my modkey would stop working right, but I have zero issues with xmonad''

``Over the past twelve months, 34 developers contributed new code to xmonad. This is one of the largest open-source teams in the world, and is in the top 2% of all project teams on Ohloh. Across all Haskell projects on Ohloh, 21% of all source code lines are comments. For xmonad, this figure is 45%. This very impressive number of comments puts xmonad among the best 10% of all Haskell projects on Ohloh. A high number of comments might indicate that the code is well-documented and organized, and could be a sign of a helpful and disciplined development team.''

``Undoubtedly the best WM around today (wmii and dwm tied for second behind it).''
