General Development Enlightenment version 16 was one of most configurable window managers back in late nineties (and still is). For the next version however Rasterman and friends decided to create a complete desktop shell instead of just a simple window manager. Enlighenment version 17 is therefore based on a set of graphical libraries which can used for other applications as well. But do we need another set of libraries when QT and GTK+ are already mature and stable? Depending on your needs, you might find that using the Enlightenment libraries is truly an enlightening experience!

My problem with E17 has been its very unstable configuration. I play around in the settings and then it randomly begins to segfault. And it will segfault on boot every single time. My only chance is then to reset the configuration and start all over. That's why I can't use it on my laptop although I sure would like to.
