Linux With Enlightment 0.17 released, it's no surprise the Linux distribution that uses E17 for its desktop is rushing to release a new version that uses it. Look for Bodhi 2.2.0 in January, featuring the stable E17 desktop. If you've never experienced it, Bodhi is a Ubuntu derivative, and it offers more configurabality than you can imagine. Have you been complaining about Unity and Gnome3 taking away your options? Bodhi and E17 bring them back - and many more, too.

What I like about it is that, though it's full of flashy eye candy, the eye candy is often useful and not just flash for flash's sake. I'm still figuring it out. I'd given E16 a try back in the day and never really connected with it. But E17 is not only easy to use, it's easy to tinker with and customize, and that's what I look for in a desktop. I truly don't get the new fascination with reducing options and configuration. For me, the more, the better!
