Window Managers Rasterman, the lead developer of the Enlightenment project, speaks about the future of Enlightenment, including the project's focus on the embedded world (Rasterman works at OpenMoko now), the relationship with commercial vendors, reorganized leadership, and even some hints at an upcoming release. "The primary thing of importance is getting E17 out the door. It's actually looking petty good. Only 2 really big TODO items left. I'm doing a theme revamp. The Default theme has very much aged. The gold bling isn't incredibly popular. I'm working on something I think people will love - and it still shows off E. It will replace the current default - and will also knock off some of the comment the default theme so its better documented for people to build new themes from and learn Edje."

I'm not much of a fan of Enlightenment for the desktop anymore because it doesn't integrate with my GTK apps and hasn't made all the progress of gnome. But, I think its performs great and looks gorgeous even on old hardware. The embeded space is the perfect fit for enlightenment. And now that Rasterman is working at openmoko, my brand new phone just got really lame. Now I've got a new reason to be excited about Enlightenment again. Hope I only have to wait half a decade this time before I get to play with it.
