Window Managers Only last week Samsung pushed out a press release announcing its new mobile operating system, named Bada. Little is known about this new operating system beyond the name of the project, but thanks to Phoronix, we know a little detail that might indicate what, exactly, Bada will be like. As it turns out, Samsung is sponsoring the Enlightenment project.

This is fantastic news for Enlightenment! I have been very impressed with E17 every time I used it, but it was always hard to build and sometimes very buggy. Hopefully this Sponsorship make it possible for raster to fully flex his genius programming abilities and push E17 into the mainstream.

Yes, its great news for them, and its also, lets give credit, a brave and enterprising move by Samsung. One wonders who approached who. If it was Samsung, really, good for them.

Time to fire it up again and try using it full time for a couple of weeks and see how it goes. At the moment I am on fluxbox, which is very nice, it stays out of the way, and its fast. But E, its a real jewel in the crown, and fluxbox by comparison is a bit dull.
