@CaptainPinko - yea, much as I hate to say it, I've been thinking that E has been basically dead or dying for years now. How long has E17 been in development? It looks like 10 years now.... and while the technology sounds pretty cool (and has since it was first talked about), the Linux world has pretty much settled on a KDE/GNOME world, and E seems to be slipping farther and farther away ;) Take a look at the wayback machine... the first mention I see of E17 is in 1999: http://enlightenment.org/index.html" rel="nofollow">http://web.archive.org/web/19991102232012/http://enlightenment.org/...

My fingers are still crossed that E17 is released and is as cool and useful as it once was thought to be, but I somehow have my doubts, and wouldn't blame the devs if they are running out of steam.

Course, I might be totally wrong, as I'm pretty much out of the E world other than seeing random E16 release announcements.
