Month Review: April

This is the first of a (hopefully) long series of posts in which I update you, my imaginary public, about what happened during past month, focusing particularly on projects I'm working on and all the achievements reached.

i3wm Retina-ready

Yesterday I’ve installed i3wm-gaps just for fun, knowing that last time I tried it on my Retina MacBook Pro ti was completely unusable due to the Retina display.

This is changing today.
