IceWM is a window manager that controls the appearance, placement & manipulation of windows. The goal of IceWM is speed, simplicity, and not getting in the user's way. It is a light window manager which should be familar to Windows users. IceWM seems to work well in Puppy, and plays well with Rox-filer. Its appearance can be changed by using different themes.

The default window manager in Puppy is JWM but you can replace it with IceWM if you want.
