awesome in squeeze

A couple of (kinda boring) shots of AwesomeWM in Debian Squeeze.

I'm not very good at using tiling window managers, probably because I really don't use them all that much. When I log into AwesomeWM, I actually have to open up man awesome because I always forget the key  bindings and mouse bindings.

The "official" site for AwesomeWM:
