  Cultured Perl: Fun with the Ion window manager
Ion is not a gentle WM, and you absolutely need the ability to dig yourself out if you misconfigure Ion or X in such a way that one or the other won't start.
Ion 1 may not have been the first to use tiling workspaces (the idea is hardly new), but it certainly did a good job of it, thanks to tabbing.
Ion 3 simplifies many of the features Ion 2 introduced, adds better modules for extending Ion, and is a minor internal rewrite of Ion (although from the scripting side, it has changed quite a bit to reflect lessons learned from Ion 2).

  Ion - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An ion is an atom, group of atoms, or subatomic particle that normally is electrically neutral and achieve their status as an ion by loss (and addition) of an electron.
A negatively charged ion, which has more electrons in its electron shells than it has protons in its nuclei, is known as an anion (pronounced an-eye-on), for it is attracted to anodes; a positively-charged ion, which has fewer electrons than protons, is known as a cation (pronounced cat-eye-on), for it is attracted to cathodes.
Ions were first theorized by Michael Faraday around 1830, to describe the portions of molecules that travel either to an anode or to a cathode.

In chemistry, an electrically charged molecule or atom is known as an ion because it has gained or lost electrons from its normal complement, a process known as ionization.
Ions were first theorized by Michael Faraday around 1830, to describe the portions of molecules that travel either to an anion or to a cation.
In Greek mythology, Ion was a son of Xuthus and Creusa.

 Lithium ion battery - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Lithium ion batteries (sometimes abbreviated Li-Ion) are a type of rechargeable battery commonly used in consumer electronics.
This is because lithium ions have an extremely high charge density — the highest of all known naturally occurring ions.
A liquid electrolyte conducts Li ions, which act as a carrier between the cathode and the anode when a battery passes an electric current through an external circuit.

Ion the rhapsode has just come to Athens; he has been exhibiting in Epidaurus at the festival of Asclepius, and is intending to exhibit at the festival of the Panathenaea.
Ion is delighted at the notion of being inspired, and acknowledges that he is beside himself when he is performing;--his eyes rain tears and his hair stands on end.
ION: Why, Socrates, the reason is, that my countrymen, the Ephesians, are the servants and soldiers of Athens, and do not need a general; and you and Sparta are not likely to have me, for you think that you have enough generals of your own.

 Boeing: Integrated Defense Systems - Satellite Development Center - Xenon Ion Propulsion Center - XIPS: The Latest ...
The xenon ion propulsion system, or XIPS (pronounced "zips"), is the culmination of nearly four decades of research into the use of electric propulsion as an alternative to conventional chemical propulsion.
Ions ejected by the Hughes-designed XIPS travel in an invisible stream at a speed of 30 kilometers per second (62,900 miles per hour), nearly 10 times that of its chemical counterpart.
And, because ion thrusters operate at lower force levels, attitude disturbances during thruster operation are reduced, further simplifying the stationkeeping task.

 Micro Ion Mobility Spectrometry Technology   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Ion mobility spectrometry (IMS) is capable of separating ionic species at atmosphere pressure and promises to have applications in detecting chemical warfare agents, explosives, and drugs.
Ions were separated in the drift region according to their mobilities.
Factors that determine resolution include: (1) initial ion pulse width, (2) broadening by Coulomb repulsion between ions in both the ionization and drift regions, (3) spatial broadening by diffusion of the ion packet, and (4) ion-molecule reactions in the drift region.

 SPACE.com -- Deep Space 1 sets record with ion propulsion system
Rocket designers have been studying ion propulsion since the 1950s, and mention of the technology often turns up in works of science fiction.
Instead of the fiery thrust produced by typical rockets, an ion engine emits only an eerie blue glow as electrically charged atoms of xenon are pushed out of the engine.
Those ions are then jolted by electricity that is produced by the probe's solar panels and accelerated at high speeds as they shoot out from the engine.

O that we were wise, Ion, and that you could truly call us so; but you rhapsodes and actors, and the poets whose verses you sing, are wise; whereas I am a common man, who only speak the truth.
And you, Ion, when the name of Homer is mentioned have plenty to say, and have nothing to say of others.
Why, yes, Ion, because you may possibly have a knowledge of the art of the general as well as of the rhapsode; and you may also have a knowledge of horsemanship as well as of the lyre: and then you would know when horses were well or ill managed.

 Deep Space 1: Advanced Technologies: Solar Electric Propulsion FAQ
Ion propulsion is a technology that involves ionizing a gas to propel a craft.
Ion propulsion is not of value for missions that require high acceleration, and it often will not be worthwhile for missions that can be done quickly using conventional propulsion systems (such as missions to the moon).
Because the ion propulsion system, although highly efficient, is very gentle in its thrust, it cannot be used for any application in which a rapid acceleration is required.

 New engine powers a new spaceship
This ion thruster is not for the impatient since it will take one whole day to accelerate the craft by an additional 30 feet per second -- about as fast as it would accelerate after dropping in Earth's gravity for one second.
The ions are pushed by gas pressure through holes in the positive grid.
Ions respond to magnetic and electric fields, and these ions are attracted to a positive grid at the back of the firing chamber.

 Ion
Ion was written as an experiment on a different kind of window management model.
To ultimately solve usability problems to the extent possible with current technologies, applications should be written independent of their user interfaces and the UIs should be built according to the user's preferences based on a high-level semantic description of commands provided by the application.
Ion is, however, improving all the time and if you take the time to get used to it, you should hardly ever have to touch the mouse again to move between windows.
