    Flipping the Linux switch: Enlightening experiences with window managers

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | We like Enlightenment as it stands now. It's one of our favorite window
    | managers. It doesn't feel too foreign to the new user, but it is still
    | extremely lightweight. If there was a spectrum with the heaviest desktop
    | environments on the right, and the lightest window managers on the left, just
    | right of the middle would be the venerable Xfce, and just to the left of the
    | middle would be Enlightenment.

    All About Linux 2008: Ten great live distros

    | distributions can be burned to bootable CDs, DVDs, flash drives, and more

    openGEU - sunny Ubuntu - Overview & short tutorial

    | openGEU is another extremely successful Ubuntu child, running Enlightenment
    | 17 as the desktop manager. Like gOS, another Ubuntu & Enlightenment distro
    | reviewed some time ago here at Dedoimedo, openGEU offers a healthy
    | refreshment of color and choices to the already well-established distro. ¬*

    OpenGEU - A new distro with a new name and a new look for Ubuntu

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | I am honestly pleased to give this package a complete 5 Pennie review. I can
    | clearly state that this is everything is a distro I want, with little given
    | way of the politics for the day with removing the codecs and having to change
    | the name. I didn't really like Geubuntu because the Ge confuses the reality
    | of the day. Eubuntu was already out there, designed as an education bundle so
    | how do you communicate what is under the hood? ¬* ¬*

    When Enlightenment met Ubuntu

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | Despite being a young distro with just two releases under its belt, Geubuntu
    | delivers a visually stunning desktop without compromising functionality. As a
    | double benefit, the components it uses to blend functionality with bling have
    | modest hardware requirements. This makes the distro perfectly suitable for
    | older computers. ¬* ¬*
    |
    | Built atop Ubuntu, the distro has a solid, well-tested base. Its unique mix
    | of components from desktop environments Xfce and GNOME on top of the
    | under-development Enlightenment environment introduces several bugs, but the
    | developers are working to iron these out, and have already tackled several
    | between the first two releases. I'd recommend this distro to desktop users
    | with aging hardware, and to users who haven't tried Enlightenment before. ¬* ¬* ¬*

    First look at Geubuntu 7.10

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | For Enlightenment and Ubuntu fans this distro is custom made for you. It
    | takes the best of Ubuntu and combines it with a great desktop environment. If
    | Ubuntu or Kubuntu is a bit too heavy for your equipment, then Geubuntu just
    | might be what you need. It might also be an idea for those who find Elive a
    | bit overwhelming, or those who like to be a bit different from the rest of
    | the crowd. ¬* ¬*

    E17 -- Desktop Enlightenment

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | You need to install E17 in order to fully appreciate the magnificent
    | work of the programmers. The direction of changes is very good -- e17
    | delivers a nice-looking desktop with many special effects, being easy
    | and lightweight at the same time. When compared to its predecessor
    | -- e16 -- it shows that the desktop personalization and new effects
    | do not have to trigger additional hardware purchases. I only wish Ic
    | ould say the same about GNOME and KDE. Also, I have to say that I
    | wish the Microsoft products were as stable and functional as e17
    | in alpha phase.

    If half these guys spent a quarter of their time fixing bugs and working
    on worthwhile application SW then maybe, just maybe, Linux would make it
    on the desktop.

    No one cares about yet another bloody half assed Window Manager.

    Streuth.

    On linux would make such a big deal over ALPHA quality software.

    -- "We'll reiterate here that e17 is an alpha release. It's a pretty early
    alpha release. We first tried it a couple of months ago, and whereas it
    worked fairly nicely (for an alpha) there were obvious hiccups and bugs
    that would have made even semi-regular use a bit trying, to say the least.
    We've been running e17 for a few days now, tossing it around and testing
    it, and it has come a long way. Do things crash? Of course."

    I paid for my Vista and it's running without any problems for a year now!
    I keep you posted, cos you don't know what your missing.
    If you had Vista running, I bet you would change your mind about Vista.
    Even Marti van Lin (ML2MST) runs XP with Vista look now!

    At least that development team is honest enough to admit it's alpha
    software.

    Most of the Linux software just gets released, alpha or not and the
    unsuspecting user has to find out for himself.

    The majority of those Linux loons use Windows by day and advocate Linux by
