Con Some changes require rebuilding from source
Changes to items like keybindings can not be made in the runtime config. They will need to be edited in the source and rebuilt.
Con Default startup config has something a bit annoying
You'll know what this means when you get it, but you can get rid of it. Reminiscent of old Windows versions and Nokia phones.
Con No "modes" like in i3
This would be useful if you wanted to turn the brightness up. Having it set to: Super+b; k; Esc. You can't do this in Wingo, although you could make a script to do such a thing.
