As far as tiling window managers go I highly recommend Scrotwm
[x11-wm/scrotwm]. The configuration is straight forward and getting it up and
running is a breeze. I have been happily using it for the past few years and
I don't see myself going back. Just keep in mind there aren't any bells and
whistles included, just how a WM should be :D
