Today, I've decided to change from GNOME to i3wm. Using it for a few days, I loathe doing rices, since I've done it before and with more functionality in mind than visual appreciation!

So I decided to go overkill. Let's create a trello board so I don't get lost since it's a lot of shit, first of all and possible start to thinking about the layout of what I want and then some colors that I enjoy.

I did some look around to see what new programs have emerged in the linux scene and which I want to use, providing that they work and are appealing in terms of configuration.

I'll probably make a git repository to keep my sanity in check and get some way that can quickly change the colors from .Xresources file or something.

Then rofi to for my menus! All my menus! It's a beautiful and pragmatic program for sure! Be sure to look into it.
Well, I still need to understand why I can't clear the notifications popups and in the center, using deadd-notification-center. I'm....
