@cookie

I believe i discovered a weird bug but i'm not sure yet.

How to produce it:
1. open firefox and terminal (xterm in my case) on one workspace;
2. set tiling mode to `bstack`;
3. move mouse cursor to firefox area, shift focus to terminal and exec `while true; do xdotool click 1; done`;.

The terminal client breaks bstack and it goes to monocle while firefox remains in bstack (weird). Can this be investigated and fixed if issues are present?

Yes it is. You must, however, take into account that dwm ships with panel. Read the start of the threat, we shared some nubers before.

I would have to download all three and compare with htop. I was just wondering if someone actually knew already.

monsterwm + bar uses 670 KiB of ram if you're curious, its pretty light you don't need to compare tongue

Dwm, Monster, Herbstluft etc are all light but what I would consider is which are still being developed and by more than one person. If a window manager is being made by one person and they get tired of working on it.....
Dwm has been around a while and looks like it will be for a while in the future.
