Spectrwm doesn't have stacked windows in the way that i3 does. It has
much the same layouts as dwm, xmonad etc., i.e. with a master window
plus others beside it or beneath it, or fullscreen.
Amyway, I'd say that both these are very good tiling WMs, and it's a
matter of personal taste which you prefer. Of course, tiling WMs in
general are an acquired taste and they are not for everyone.
