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.

I'm always keeping an eye out for lightweight DE's to help speed up my laptop (not that old, 1.7Ghz, 512RAM) and to help keep it remain snappy. I managed to install an older version of EDE, and it seems okay but the hardcoded menus killed it, since I dont like going back and re-editing the entire men. But I did manage to find out that LXDE is back on track for anyone looking for a good alternative to EDE.
