    It can be found in the Arch Linux repos, so I might try it again this weekend:

    Arch Linux - Package Database

    It's probably been at least 7 or 8 years since I last installed it, and I didn't care much for it back then, but perhaps it or my tastes have changed. I might do another round of IceWM this weekend as well if time permits.

    It appears to be 32-bit only unless they are hiding the 64-bit version, or I'm just not seeing the download for it.

    Yeah I am running 32 bit, kind of sucks but at the same time, it's actually a lot faster than the other distros I've run. Enlightenment uses so much less resources that so far I haven't missed having 4 gigs of RAM available and the other small (usually) performance boosts that 64 bit software give.

    For some unknown reason I can't seem to edit older posts... (?) so I will post a correction here:

    It's available but I believe it's hopelessly out of date - i.e. not much activity from the maintainer(s): Debian Package Tracking System - e17

    I've been trying out Cinnamon for a couple of days now. And for complete disclosure, I was expecting, no rather wanting to hate it but I don't.

    It's not perfect but as a young project that is to be expected. It's quick, familiar and has plenty of eye candy but no wobbly windows; which is a serious omission in my not so humble opinion. If you are going to do eye candy then wobbling windows are neccessary. Allright optional, I know they're not to everyone's taste.

    Given that it's based on Gnome 3, then it is quite configurable.It still needs more but what an improvement over Gnome's Hell.

    I stll prefer XFCE but am eagerly awaiting V1.5. And what's with it being V1.4 already? Aren't open source projects supposed to take at least a decade to get to V1.0?

    I think you get 24 hours to edit your posts, which is more generous than some fora and less generous than others

    Yep...
    From the Forum User FAQ:
