Pop for now
Work requires me to hop between various web apps, a couple of terminals, one or two rdp sessions, a chat app, a password manager (or two, we’re migrating), zoom and (in home office) a soft phone. I’ve tried a bunch of distros and customisations (I need to stay in deb land for work reasons) but Pop’s tiling approach makes this fairly straightforward… at least, when and while it works.
I find it usually takes anywhere between one and four hours, but at some point in the day it seems to lose track of how wide or tall my screens are (whether using two standard HD screens in the office or a single 4K at home), and will not be persuaded to let windows cover the full screen - the bottom half or one eighth edge of one screen will just show me desktop. The only solution seems to be logging out and back in, which gets old quickly.
I’ve seen similar behaviour with a bunch of Gnome tiling extensions, on a bunch of distros, so it’s either hardware (it isn’t) or Gnome itself is throwing up problems that just can’t easily be solved by extensions. So I’m really looking forward to Cosmic, even if it’s probably still a long way off.
