i am always open for making my workplace more productive and easier to 
use. so i will have a try of E17 and ion3, while second looks like more 
designed to my needs.

i tried ratpoison but i was unable to do single-key switching to other 
desktops and manage well subwindows in some apps like gimp, which always 
needs multiple windows on one desktop.

PS. Because i don't get definition of desktop i used there and in other 

desktop is one complete full screen workspace.

be it text or graphics doesn't matter.

PS2. still waiting for precise desktop definition, because i think that 
this term is regularly misused.
