I don't really get what are you trying to say? Should I go for using
tiling wms or not?
Or learning the tiling wm are too time consuming?

Simply that, if you intend to take i3, you will have to learn to think
differently. My opinion is that tiling wm are far more efficient than
classic stacking window managers, but it indeed changed my habits. Since
then, for example, I do not use any file explorer, they are slower than
command line for most things. Of course, you still can use file
Now, i3 is the one I choose because it did not implied a lot of
learning, it's configuration file is really clean: no need to learn any
programming language there, but facts is that it lacks some features
against more hard-core twm, for example some others have layouts: new
windows does not just split current container, they are moved in a
precise place of the screen.
But anyway, here is a quote from i3-wm.org: "i3 is primarily targeted
at advanced users and developers.". Gnome users might do not feel good
there. It provide only a window manager, no menu, no desktop, etc. You
will have to install those yourself.
