I can’t think of something I can’t live without, but one thing I switched to that I wouldn’t want to go back from is a trackball mouse. I bought an Elecom Huge, and it’s been great. Though I still haven’t setup the extra buttons to work correctly on Linux. I keep meaning to.

i3-gaps is a fork of i3wm, a tiling window manager for X11. It is kept up to date with upstream, adding a few additional features such as gaps between windows (see below for a complete list).

It’s basically just the space between/around the windows. With normal i3 there’s no space, so everything touches. With gaps there’s space (“gaps”) between/around windows.
