Thanks for the info, so much better than the typical 'try the wm's for yourself and see what you like'. I think I will give it a try.

Thank you very much for the great tutorial on IceWM. I'm already using IceWM and you gave me valuable info that will improve my use of Ice.

It might be off topic, but you really caught my attention when you said :

I'm always looking for an edge for my old box (PII 266)
Could you give me more of your system info : distro, tweaks you did, amount of RAM, etc... because my PII 350 is really slow for Linux.

Thanks,
Matthieu

I've installed icewm, it's there, confirmed as such, however Suse93 refuses to allow it to be shown on the windowmanager as one of the choices. All the others are there. So, how to get it to show up there is the question.
I've installed and uninstalled a couple of times (using synaptic) which normally would add it to the start menu choices.

Just came across this IceWM Control Center it is great. No more opening a text editor to edit the IceWM files. Makes editing and changing this a snap. I was very impressed. The site has a RPM and .deb version.

cool! I had already figured out IceWM before the article, but reading what I had found out felt so good.
