I found this interesting display server called Arcan while browsing the FreeBSD packages one day. I’ve been following the project along for about a year but have yet to give it a try.
Anyways, I think it’s really interesting. The developer has created 5 different DE for it so far. One Amiga like DE, a tiling WM, a VR-ish DE, another Plan9 inspired DE and, my favourite, a “zooming-tiling” WM with a spreadsheet inspired workflow.
You have to check out the video to understand.
Are there any other display servers out there that don’t get any attention?
