Talk:Create DWM statusbar

From Rosetta Code

Vote for deletion[edit]

Poor task as it stands. In general Rosettacode tasks should aim for inclusivity. This task assumes:

  • A unix-like operating system
  • running the X11 graphical environment
  • on a battery powered system
  • that has sound capability (all right this isn't that out there)
  • running some obscure and little used window manager

Which is going to rule out quite a few languages before they get out of the gate. I vote for deletion. --Thundergnat (talk) 00:11, 11 June 2020 (UTC)

Seconded. The task might be salvageable if it were to collect such information on any platform (with submissions stating which, and the task appropriately renamed) but direct dependencies of DWM/statusbar/.xinirc and even the formula for mem% are not a good fit for rc. --Pete Lomax (talk) 13:02, 11 June 2020 (UTC)
  • Unix-like operating systems are rather common/frequently...
  • X11 is a quite frequently software (Okay, I also do not like it but for the time being it almost unavoidable on a desktop...)
  • There are battery in a laptop, generally, isn't it?
  • DWM is one of the "tiled" window managers which are not a marginally group at all, many people like them!
  • Consequently I think the assumptions of this task are not at all so exceptional.
  • As I myself are concerned, I vote for NOT delete.
