As for the file manager and terminal, i agree that these are not window manager functions and enlightenment as gone beyond and become a light weight desktop environment. But as long as the Enlightenment devs consider it a window manager, i suspect Jeremy will conform.

It also comes with and offers a host of native libraries to write and developed applications with. It is just as much a DE as gnome, XFCE or KDE is, just its very lightweight.

Xfce. If it's good enough for Linus, it's good enough for me.

Linus is back to KDE4.

Knightron, I've edited your post. You've been a member long enough to know that kind of language/attitude isn't acceptable here at LQ.

I've just finished testing a KDE distro and I've decided the developers are playing a game: how many configuration tools can you hide where the user will never find them? Shortcuts for "move to next workspace" and "move window to next workspace" set on completely different screens! And I still haven't decided whether they really mean to have a panel clock you can't configure, or whether they've just found a really good hiding place.

Hi! Well, at this moment I'm using Debian testing, TDE is working really well on it.

Edit: Besides, I enjoy using icewm as a main "desktop" (but... it's a WM and this comment just start smelling like off topic )

The developers said that? source please.
The official website described Enlightenment as a window manager.

If you go back just one page, you will see that another member asked almost the exact same question.

No problem mate. We get people from all over the world here with varying degrees of English. You're spelling and grammar's a little messed up, but it's easy to understand what you're saying, so don't worry about it. Good work.

LXDE performs well on the Raspberry Pi. It's the default DE on Raspbian, and I'm using it on SlackwareARM and Arch ARM, too.

I feel the same way, being a long time Gnome 2 user. I've always tried KDE but it's hard to find the tools you need to configure things. Plus, with a default install, it installs to many apps, imo.

I honestly gave up with Gnome trying to figure out how to use a GUI to customize any part of it. I basically view it as a bloated openbox that's a pain and a half to change around.
