+Notion is a tiling, tabbed window manager for the X window system:
+* Tiling: you divide the screen into non-overlapping 'tiles'.
+ Every window occupies one tile, and is maximized to it
+* Tabbing: a tile may contain multiple windows - they will be 'tabbed'
+* Static: most tiled window managers are 'dynamic',
+ meaning they automatically resize and move around tiles as windows
+ appear and disappear. Notion, by contrast, does not automatically
+ change the tiling. You're in control.
+
+Features include:
+
+* Workspaces: each workspace has its own tiling.
+* Multihead: the mod_xinerama plugin provides very nice dual-monitor
+ support.
+* RandR: mod_xrandr expands on mod_xinerama and picks up changes in
+ the randr configuration without the need for restarting Notion
+* Extensibility: Notion can be extended with lua scripts.
+
+NOTE: to launch it at X start just put 'exec notion' in a ~/.xinitrc
+file.
