Awesome (Window Manager)
Awesome is a highly configurable window manager. It handles both tiling and floating layouts. You can go into a fine-grained customization to suit your needs with Lua scripting.
- A physical monitor plugged into your computer.
- A window.
- A tag is something like a workspace or a desktop that you may find in other window managers. However, it is slightly more flexible as you can attach a client to multiple tags. Moreover, each screen has its own range of tags.
