Window Managers The Equinox Desktop Environment is a small memory footprint desktop environment built on top of the extended FLTK toolkit ('Fast Light Tool Kit'). EDE features a desktop, a Windows-like panel with 'start' menu, taskbar, and system tray, support for theming, and graphical front-ends for software installation, xscreensaver configuration, and much more. Linux.com took a look at EDE version 1.2.

Reminiscent of Windows...

I think this DE shows great promise, especially to Windows refugees. The entire desktop seems reminiscent to Windows (of various vintages) and that's not a bad thing. This would be great for users who want a familiar environment or those using older hardware. Overall another great alternative to the "Big 3": Gnome, KDE, XFCE...
