Window Managers Rasterman, the lead developer of the Enlightenment project, speaks about the future of Enlightenment, including the project's focus on the embedded world (Rasterman works at OpenMoko now), the relationship with commercial vendors, reorganized leadership, and even some hints at an upcoming release. "The primary thing of importance is getting E17 out the door. It's actually looking petty good. Only 2 really big TODO items left. I'm doing a theme revamp. The Default theme has very much aged. The gold bling isn't incredibly popular. I'm working on something I think people will love - and it still shows off E. It will replace the current default - and will also knock off some of the comment the default theme so its better documented for people to build new themes from and learn Edje."

The first time I used XFCE was back with version 3.something. At that time I liked it quite a lot, although after a few months I ended up going back to Windowmaker.

I intended to try it out again once it'd made the switch to gtk - I thought it'd be nice overall.

Big mistake (with my expectations). There are differences, but overall, it _has_ shifted toward a Gnomish interface (upper and lower tool bar, anyone?).

It's not a total loss, though. Thunar is still my main file manager.
