Window Managers So, yeah, it's been ten years in the making, including a number of rewrites, but the day has finally come: the Enlightenment Foundation Libraries, which, surprisingly enough, form the foundation of, among other things, Enlightenment, have reached beta status. This is a major step towards the final release of Enlightenment DR17, which should hit before year's end.

We all go through this every now and then. Remember Wine 1.0? How about Mozilla 1.0? And I had similar thoughts when Star Craft II was released this year.

All in all as a long-time E16 user I am pleased to see E17 reaching maturity. You can really do some impressive things with it and I'd like some more modern E16 alternative that doesn't suck. Remember when there were dozens of interesting window managers and everyone used something different? Now most people don't know what a WM is, much less which they're running. Metacity, compiz, kwin and the die-hard minimalists are all you really hear of these days.
