Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"A lot of people new to Linux often point to KDE and GNOME as
the desktop environments for Linux. This is absurd, of course, but
the lack of robust features found in some window managers tends to
reinforce this myth."
"This is certainly not the case with IceWM, one of the most
tightly run and robust window managers for X today."
"We all have our personal preferences, of course, and I'm sure
many of you will brand me some sort of heretic for stating this,
but truth be told, I like this one a lot."
"IceWM, a GNOME-compliant window manager, runs very well on its
own, without the overlying GNOME layer. It is the default window
manager linked with GNOME in the Debian distribution, so it's got a
pretty big following already."
