Subject description: a tiling window manager for beginners
 

For those who would like to try a tiler with minimum fuss, I’d recommend one called i3. It has very few dependencies, is in almost every repository on the planet, is extremely popular with a large user base and perhaps most importantly for first-time users, is usable right after install. In fact, it should show up right away as an option in your login screen after installing it.

An extensive review of i3 window manager is to be found here :

I find JWM one the the best window manager to enhance performance on older laptops, but you can optimize performance with i3.

Hi labbe5.

An offering to the dominant god is always a good thing if you don't want to
get into trouble with the natives! Wink (Clue: jwm! )

Hello again, labbe5.

Have you tried i3 in Puppy? IIRC, it wouldn't work in Puppy because it's
based on some sort of alternative to Xorg, which we don't ship ex-factory.
(This being only one man's test, it needs confirmation, please. TIA.)

One tiling WM that can be confirmed as working on Puppy is echinus:
