Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu DistroWatch reviews Geubuntu, and concludes: "For Enlightenment and Ubuntu fans this distro is custom made for you. It takes the best of Ubuntu and combines it with a great desktop environment. If Ubuntu or Kubuntu is a bit too heavy for your equipment, then Geubuntu just might be what you need. It might also be an idea for those who find Elive a bit overwhelming, or those who like to be a bit different from the rest of the crowd."

Things have changed quite a bit since then. Back then, E was the "bling" desktop, it was a lot flashier then the alternatives, but also rather resource heavy. The thing is, the rest of the linux GUI world has pretty much caught up, but are a good 5 years behind rasterman (the lead dev) when it comes to ideas and techniques. His rendering libraries are probably the most efficient out of whats available atm.

The only thing is that OpenMoko recently hired him, I have no idea what kind of impact that will have on E.

I believe they hired him to work on Enlightenment, so probably a positive impact.

One of the reasons he was hired by OpenMoko seems to be that they want to port E17 to their platform, so I'm assuming that impact of Enlightenment will be positive, as he will be able to work on E and get paid at the same time.
