Just wanted to add my bit with regards to Ratpoison,in particular to the posts who understandably are confused by having an OS that doesnt have a mouse.
On my laptop,i have a Synaptic/Scrybe mousepad,this mousepad requires proprietry drivers (S/S have kindly supplied Linux drivers on their website),so each time i try a new installed distro,i have to use a USB mouse,or if i want to use the S/S mousepad,i install the drivers,no big deal then?However having done this umpteen times i got to understand the S/S drivers seem to impact on parts of my system,i felt more than necessary..and with them being proprietry and neither FOSS nor FLOSS im not in the position to fully compehend the reasons why.
So if i want to be on the go with my laptop,without having to carry a extra mouse,and i want code on my HD i can actually read!
Ratpoison is perfect
i can see other interesting consequences of this flavor too.And im warming to it.
