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 type ctrl-alt-space then "mozilla" (no quotes of course), then press enter, and mozilla pops up. It's a lot easier than going start/applications/www browsers/mozilla with the mouse.

But is it easier than clicking (or double-clicking) an icon?

I've tried IceWM a couple of times but every time I thought it's kludgy to use with mouse (especially in trying to resize windows). I do know that most IceWM users prefer to use keyboard only. For me, a handful of keyboard shortcuts is enough and I prefer to do the rest with mouse.
