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.

Isn't the screen itself a window?

I understand your position. But, my question remains: Isn't leaving 90 percent of your screen space to a nonfunctional piece of art a waste?

I am not willing to sacrifice capability to the purity of the Unix way. Frankly, it is irrelevant to me what a window manager is supposed to do. (After all, where are the UNix police?)
