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 was an Enlightenment 0.16 user for a long time and I still remember that the first time I read the expression "desktop shell" was on Enlightenment website's own description of Enlightenment 0.17.

Technically E17 is amazing, but the biggest problem, in my opinion, is that the formal release took so long. The mantra "release early, release often" should have been taken more seriously by the Enlightenment team. That way they could have gained much more traction on the community.

Distributions including Gentoo have been packaging SVN snapshots for at least five years now. My first experience with e17 was on Arch in 2008. This is just the "ok, we're done, we really mean it, go nuts" release.
