Window Managers EDE is a desktop environment for UNIX-like operating systems. Main features of EDE are speed and responsiveness, low resource usage and familiar look and feel. Simply put, a desktop should not get in your way. This is the final 2.0 release, a major rework. Summarizing previous alpha and beta releases, 2.0 is now fully FLTK powered (eFLTK is deprecated) and freedesktop.org friendly. Specificaly, this release adds a new notification daemon, replaces the old edewm with the pekwm window manager, fixes a lot of issues and memory leaks, and more. Grab the release and try it. You can also try ede netinstall, a single command that will download and compile EDE for you.

Wow, that's a great news! I remember using EDE back in the years. It was kinda buggy, but going into right direction IMHO. I am now using XFCE, as it shares kinda same concept of desktop simplicity and integrity. One of the great weaknesess of EDE was FLTK, but it still looks pretty damn classy good.
I'm glad EDE incorporates PekWM which I find very good WM. Let's see how it works for this DE.
