I3-wm request
Closed, WontfixPublic


i would be really glad if i3-wm and i3status,dmenu could be added to Solus, i like the Solus philosofity and the rolling expect but budgie is not my favorite DE/WM. I know budgie is the flagship but some more options would be nice for the users?

We provide Budgie and GNOME Shell. I don't see why we would provide i3 as an option.

Well i can understand that, and Solus want's to be coherent with one desktop to rule them all but a small package like this does not interfering with anything. I mean what harm can i3 do if it is in the repo or not? :)

It isn't about "harm", it is about providing a modern operating system with a modern user experience. i3 doesn't fulfill that.
