The word is that the team will make some announcements at the EFL Developer Day taking place as part of Linuxcon Europe on 5 November. With a release likely being close at hand, The H spoke to project leader Carsten 'Rasterman' Haitzler about how the desktop environment has been progressing and what the goals are for the project."

I attended Rasterman's talk at Atlantacon in 2001 ( where he presented Evas and discussed the upcoming E17. That was over 11 years ago. It was an exciting prospect at the time, but now? Probably not.

Once I asked a ~demographer about mortality statistics for the most likely demographic (mostly teens to early adults) of Duke Nukem 3D players - and it turns out that ~1% of them didn't make the wait, the decade+ of DNF development.

It's certainly similar for Enlightenment...
