I've tried e17 a few times in its development. The animated desktop background was cool for a few minutes and the drop shadows were neat (until I realized they're "fake" and always drawn on the desktop layer instead of on whatever is under the window, like another window). However, I couldn't find any reason to use e17. After being a mac user for over 17 years, the eye-candy thing is a bit tired. I'm much more interested in window managers like ion, which actually innovates in a way that makes a computer more efficient and easy to use by truely managing windows instead of just throwing them on the screen for me to drag around and resize endlessly.
