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.

IceWM has me curious

@Saberworks:
I like your theme. Looks nice and simple.

@Russel:
I just installed Openbox last week. Its great and fast. I had to download fbpanel too because I really like having a taskbar to select open apps with which I didn't see one in openbox.

This article has got me curious about IceWM. I think the last time I used it was with a slack 3.x edition, or maybe it was a live cd I had. But its definitely been a while and I'm going to download and compile it tonight. Looks like it gives me all I want, a task bar and some quick launch buttons.
