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!

The majority of the comments were on e17.
The article was on the Enlightenment libraries.

There is QUITE a gap. Not even close.

ok,so what other aplication out there uses the EFL as a base?? ....nothing.... one thing i really despise is that this is another toolkit that tries to reimplement c++ in part instead of just using a subset of c++ like fltk does.
