Window Managers "The performance of desktop computers increases year by year. This gives the programmers great opportunities to further improve the desktop experience of the users. However, what should you do when you have an old computer that is not capable of running the latest and hottest software? How can you benefit from the great software that is X.org when you can't run a desktop that takes advantage of its best features? No need for upgrading your PC, when you can have a usable alternative with the current one. Let me introduce you to Enlightenment E17 - the window manager with minimal hardware requirements that may amaze you."

So, I gave the E17 a try, because I have some speed problems with KDE, and it seems that E starts applications faster than KDE, at least for ME, so Im happy:)

I have one question tho...
Do I have to go through all this CVS download, and recompile, every library in order to update E in the future, what I understand it is very fast development, so once a week would be a good frequency to update? Or is there any scripts that makes it less repeteditive to download and recompile E?
