Window Managers In the final years of my high school career, more concerned with going out and drinking three times a week than with actually doing anything meaningful at my supposedly posh gymnasium, I rediscovered my love for computing - a love lost during the onset of aforementioned going out and drinking. Realising I would hit university soon, I saved up 2000 guilders, ordered the parts for a brand-new computer, and thanks to this then state-of-the-art computer, old flames were rekindled. Since this pun is burning a hole in my pocket - it was an enlightening experience.

I agree: maybe there are many people, who do - but that's why I'm asking: is E17 anything more, than "nice looking desktop environment" (since what I can have using IceWM is nice enough for me)?

I guess it's possible to theme e17 "like icewm" (and without all the bling) - and it would probably be faster than the original.

It's quite amazing what their libraries are capable of.

yes, faster and consume even less memory, of course.

Do you know terminology ? Look at http://www.enlightenment.org/p.php?p=about/terminology&l=en and the videos on that page :-)

And is it possible to make it *NOT* messing with fonts? E17 makes all the fonts a bit blurry. And switching antialiasing to "none" in "look -> fonts -> hinting/fallbacks" didn't help.

This is why I don't use E16 or E17. The fonts hurt my eyes.
