Window Managers In the final years of my high school career, more concerned with going out and drinking three times a week than with actually doing anything meaningful at my supposedly posh gymnasium, I rediscovered my love for computing - a love lost during the onset of aforementioned going out and drinking. Realising I would hit university soon, I saved up 2000 guilders, ordered the parts for a brand-new computer, and thanks to this then state-of-the-art computer, old flames were rekindled. Since this pun is burning a hole in my pocket - it was an enlightening experience.

I agree: maybe there are many people, who do - but that's why I'm asking: is E17 anything more, than "nice looking desktop environment" (since what I can have using IceWM is nice enough for me)?

I guess it's possible to theme e17 "like icewm" (and without all the bling) - and it would probably be faster than the original.

It's quite amazing what their libraries are capable of.
