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.

A happy icewm

I'm a happy icewm user, it's not as "ui-nice" as gnome but it actually leaves RAM for your apps, and has nice features like ie: alt + F11 fullscreens the window. _any_ window, I mean, that's the real place where fullscreen should be not just in 4 or 5 apps ;)

I use the console as "file manager", no desktop icons (desktop space was made to be occuped by windows not having to minimize things) and i like taskbars. Also, it can load KDE-compatible tray icons ;)

In short: simple and stupid, as i like ;)
