    First time I saw enlightenment was with OpenGeu.

    And I thought it was amazing.

    But unfortunately development seems to be either stopped or stuck somewhere.

    Anyway to your question, I think enlightenment is actually quite nice. Try it.

    First time I used Enlightenment was on OzOS a few years ago. It was very nicely done and I liked it a lot:

    I think enlightenment is a one man band, therefore development is very slow. It looks quite nice and is very configurable but is still too buggy to be used full time in my opinion.

    I tired the PCLinxOS version of E-17 back in August. It was gorgeous, lots of eyecandy from boot screen to desktop. I really can't remember what I didn't like about it?

    That's incorrect.

    E17 has actually been an interesting piece of software to follow for the past five or six years. It's always just been development software only, but ever since the developer was hired (by Samsung, the name escapes me) it has been progressing even more. The first beta came out less than a month ago:

    Yeah, I used OzOS too (plus a bunch of other E-17 distros as well). I liked it a great deal. It was a beautiful OS (I think it's pretty much dead or stagnated now). But, the luster wore off due to trying to get Wine launchers added to the application bar. A lot of the settings are just buried too deeply in the structure of the operating system to suit me.

    Later...

    Elive was another I used a great deal. I think it's still being actively developed.

    Sorry, if I gave wrong impression.
    I was reffering to OpenGeu with that statement.
