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.

Still GTK 1.x, I guess? Configurable by hand editing? (And no, various "control centers" are not a solution -- is it that damn difficult to make a context menu with "Settings" command for every configurable item and a simple GUI for changing preferences?) Why not XFCE4 then?

As for icons on the desktop, many people like and do use them... Give them the choice to use or not to use them.

PathFinder looks good, but it's Fox-based --> won't blend with GTK2 or Qt...
