Linux About a week ago the Elive project released version 0.6 of their E17-based (installable) live CD. Since Elive is one of the few distributions using E17 as its standard desktop environment, we thought we would treat you to a nice screenshot tour.

Judging from the screenshots, this is a fairly old (months) version of e17. Just saying, in case anyone was thinking this reflected recent development.

Just for completeness, there is a reason for using an older e17 given on the elive website:

The reason for this is because of the development of the famous shelf. It is better to wait until this is finished and implemented into E17. In the mean time, Elive is releasing the stable version of Elive Revolution. This version of E17 is a very carefully selected version with the result of a really stable E17 for your daily work ;) In any case, if you want the latest version of e17, you just need to use the tests repository.

I have been using the Ubuntu Dapper binaries for e17 from "Seer of Souls" It uses the shelf in the default configuration and it seems very stable to me.
