@HexDSL those system specs are almost identical to mine! I have a GTX980 instead :)

@HexDSL
Aesthetic minimalism seems to just fit right in with the Unix Philosophy

@dax i3 makes you trend towards minimalism and terminal i think.

@HexDSL
I agree, switching to i3 was the beginning of my path to a minimalist system

Most of my applications are in the terminal nowadays except for my games and the occasional web browsing
@HexDSL
Switching to Gentoo helped bring the minimalism down to the OS and individual software level ;)
@dax @HexDSL i use bspwm these days but I'm honestly not sure whether i prefer it or i3. i find if you try to do any serious customization with bspwm you tend to bog things down a lot because of the overhead of running shell scripts for each given event and all, but you really just can't do that customisation with i3 and i think that was Fine Too

@HexDSL

Well, I use dwm nowadays, but I used i3 for about two years and Sway for a year or so

@pea @dax i3 might not be the coolest tiling window manager, but I have found it to be the most feature complete. That in combination with their IPC interface makes it to my favourite alternative. :)
