I have kubuntu, ubuntu, xubuntu, mythubuntu and geubuntu on my system...i like them all and will occassionaly pop into the other sessions but I really love geubuntu. I have been using enlightenment for about a year and
have had no show stopping problems. E17 is in constant developement, but it is very mature ...if a a bug appears, a little patience in a couple of days it is resolved. My answer go a head, but also have the main official *buntus to fall back on ...should you be temporarily denied your beautiful desktop.
