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've tried nearly every WM and DE which is available for Unix - IceWM was simply the best: I'm using nearly exclusively the keyboard, and IceWM is perfectly easy to configure in a way, that every app I need is simply a hotkey away.
Besides that, its fast, lightweight - and after using it 2 years in my workplace we've grown together.
