Which are which parts, exactly? I don't recall ever seeing more than
one window in anything I have used -- which you are going to say is why
I never have a problem not using a WM. But still, given that I use a

I don't think I ever "recommended" it. I merely shared my long-term
experience with it. I am not going to stop sharing my experience as I
hope nobody else does either. What's the point of the ML if we all stop
sharing our experiences?
