General Development Enlightenment version 16 was one of most configurable window managers back in late nineties (and still is). For the next version however Rasterman and friends decided to create a complete desktop shell instead of just a simple window manager. Enlighenment version 17 is therefore based on a set of graphical libraries which can used for other applications as well. But do we need another set of libraries when QT and GTK+ are already mature and stable? Depending on your needs, you might find that using the Enlightenment libraries is truly an enlightening experience!

Must be something wrong there. Installed Antix Linux with E17 on an old K6 2-550 box with 256 MB ram the other day, and even on that old chugger the CPU doesn't go above 15% unless doing something intensive.
