Every time I've tried using it I get frustrated and stymied.
Sometimes I think I need someone to hand me a system with it fully set up and
doing the sort of things I do with KDE and say "here you are, use this", but
I loved E-16 (which enlightenment still provides a release of), and I worked
with enlightment (E-17 at first, then just enlightenment). The desktop is
excellent, but the widgets were horribly fragile. You would tweak a setting in
the file navigation "thing?" and things would fall apart.
Years ago I used to try to install and compare each of the desktops from
repositories/X11:/windowmanagers/ (even sawfish), and they all had their
pluses and minuses. E-16 stood out, as did the rendering in enlightenment (as
did/does Fluxbox for just a damn good and simple Linux desktop).
I'll have to see if I can try enlightenment again. It has been 8 or so years
since I had it running (maybe longer)
