Window Managers IceWM is a lightweight window manager for UNIX-like systems. Although widely used, it is often underrated - there is hardly any IceWM-related content on the Internet. This article is my attempt to share my experiences as a longtime IceWM user. It contains tips and tricks, usage scenarios, and makes use of examples whenever possible to better demonstrate IceWM's features and capabilities. Finally, the article is meant for those with some familiarity with UNIX, but who are new to IceWM.

I built IceWM a few days ago but gave up on it: the font display was obviously worse than the Gnome I was considering replacing. (Yes, I use the antialias compile option.)

Also, on the issue of icons on the desktop: Why Not? Why waste usage of 90 percent of the screen?
