Slackbody becomes SlackIce
Well, I've had my enlightenment experience and I've decided, after half a year, that I just don't have the patience any more to watch it load. E started out as a window manager but now at E17, it's bloated into a full-scale desktop environment. Whatever you call this, it certainly isn't minimalist.
I got rid of it last night and installed icewm from Slackbuilds.org. It loads only a bit slower than dwm and I'm going to put some Barbarella bars on it as launchers.
Getting rid of E and its libraries cut my root partition usage from 62% to 57% (359 MB)."I'm just a little old lady; don't try to dazzle me with jargon!"

I don't think Enlightenment ever set out to be "minimalist". They've always been up front about it being all about the eye candy.Registered Linux user #384279
