So, on my old Netbook, now happily running C6.9, I’m looking for opinions for a lightweight window manager. Gnome surely ain’t it….
Years back, I used to like IceWM, but not sure it’s been kept up.
I have an old Gateway netbook that runs XFCE and LWM just fine. It’s Ubuntu, not CentOS however. Granted it’s a recent kernel and a heavier package size I would think.

I’d’ve been happy to stay with Gnome if whoever wrote metacity hadn’t
broken the function-key mappings. I use FVWM on Oracle Linux 6.9:

Can’t get much lighter than that.

I used IceWM a long, long, tried it recently – it’s unchanged. Love it! :-)
Really? It didn’t look like the executables had been updated in years. But if they have, I *really* need to take a second look.
You’re in luck:
