    Have you checkout the Enlightenment Desktop Manager?


    If you have never checked out the Enlightenment Desktop Manager here's a perfect time to take a look. The Elive project just released a new version today of thier liveCD containing Knoppix with Enlightenment 17.


    As of right now there is only a torrent for download, but direct download by ftp is coming soon. But the torrent was very fast for me. I downloaded the 645 meg iso in 26 minutes.

    I love enlightenment, even though I've only been using it a few days. Since I installed it, I haven't used anything else

    Tried elive after reading your post. Thanks for the link. DR17 (or e17) is very impressive. I love the idock concept. Muck beter then a standard taskbar.

    As I mentioned, I'm using 16, but I think both the 16 and 17 in Elive are just awsome. I agree with something I read in a review, that the only thing which compares is Mac's OSX. I just can't believe how light on sistem resources it is. Compare it with something like Win XP's GUI or the Win Vista which is in development...

    KDE and Gnome are nice, but once enlightenment gets under your skin so to speak, that's it.

    Enlightenment 17 is a BEAUTIFUL creature, but it's too unstable for me right now .

    But the second it hits a stable release, I am SO switching.

    Cabhan, just out of curiosity...
    By stability, do you mean crashes, or development stability?

    This is an awesome desktop. I decided not to wait.
    I go now to unmask it in Gentoo.

    This seems to be the new big thing in Linux desktops. Maybe I should go check it out.

    Yep, I've tried e17 and earlier versions but didn't care for it, as I prefer the more simplistic type window managers. Enlightenment is overly flashy for my tastes, but then a person's tastes do change with time, so I will be trying it again soon. The speed it at which it opens new windows is a very desirable feature.
