    I'm suprised we haven't seen many E17 related threads here at OSNN, that development code has many secrets, such as the future of Linux desktops as we know it! So, wanna discuss it? Let's be doing it here!

    I compiled it December 18th 2005 and already customized it!

    Oh and there's really no need to start another desktop thread. Simply post any further images in the desktop thread.

    But, E17 is very specific, and it is a pain in the y.k.w. to set up from source code.

    (y.k.w.=you know what/where)

    Exactly. It will certainly not be popular enough to justify a whole new thread for it. We barely get enough replies in the regular desktop thread as it is.

    Better idea, could a mod please change the title to "The Offical Enlightenment 17 thread". I will edit my post to show this as well.

    It looks pretty neat - website poorly designed though.

    /shakes goes back to reading about it.
