It's not really correct to say that Ratpoison, Stumpwm and Musca does not support system tray. It's really easy to set them to use panels like lxpanel or something like this.

Need a brief 'Advantages:, Disadvantages:' blurb for each WM. Misfit138 18:27, 3 January 2009 (EST)

I'm working on Misfit138's point above, but could somebody add something on Ion3? I've never used it, and don't know much about it. --SamC 20:51, 3 January 2009 (EST)

I'm going to add several other tiling WMs once I get all the information about them for the comparison table cdwillis:

|- ! evilwm | C++ || C++ || Dynamic || None || No || Built-in, reads from root window name || No

|- ! larswm | C || C || Dynamic || None || No || Built-in, reads from root window name || No

|- ! qtile | C || Python || Dynamic || None || No || Built-in, reads from root window name || No

|- ! subtle | C || Lua || Dynamic || None || No || Built-in, reads from root window name || No
