In Unix computing, IceWM is a window manager for the X Window System graphical infrastructure, written by a Slovenian Marko Maček . It was coded from scratch in C++ and is released under the terms of the GNU Library General Public License. It is relatively lightweight in terms of memory and CPU usage, and comes with themes that allow it to imitate the UI of Windows 95, OS/2, Motif, and other graphical user interfaces.
The primary aim of the IceWM project is to have a windowmanager which has a "good" look and feel ,at the same time is lightweight . IceWM can be configured from plain text files stored in a user's home directory, making it easy to customize and copy settings. IceWM has an optional, built-in taskbar with menu, tasks display, network and CPU meters, mail check and configurable clock. Official support for GNOME and KDE menus are available as a separate package. External graphical programs for editing configuration and menu exist.
