Elive Linux Distro

The reason I mention this Distro is because of it is only distro I found using Enlightenment Window Manager, and it provides two environments for you to choose between E16(Stable) and E17(Devel). This is intuitive enough for me to try out and I really love it. From the irc channel #Enlightenment that I have noticed, there are not much people out there using Enlightenment, however I still give thumbs up for the work that have been done by the developers of Enlightenment. It provides fast switching, customizable key binding with e16keyedit and other cool features that you can't find in other Windows Manager. Here's the screenshot of Elive Linux.


If you notice the bar down there, it's not gdesklets but Engage which is actually a default application of Enlightenment, and it is far more better.

Enlightenment rocks :]

I tried the Elive CD too for a while, and it was a nice live CD to have around. E17 is the most stunning WM i have seen so far.

Though i discourage the mere mortal to try the "install" feature on anything else than a machine you plan to reinstall in a couple of weeks. I'd rather advocate for installing a ubuntu and *then* import packages you need from the e17 repository. the other way round doomed my systems :P
