What distro are you using. Unless you are low on space, you don't need to remove KDE - just install Enlightenment.

PS: This page may help you to get better answers. Putting the distro in your profile is a good start, as is searching google.

Enlightenment question

I am using Slackware 10.2, I just want to be able to use all the cool custom stuff Enlightenment seems to have...unless there is a better one. I don't want anything that resembles windows. When someone looks at my laptop, I want them to be lost. Do you know a good one?

I think can't full fill your requirement.
During I try enlightenment in ubuntu. Seems likeyou have no any application able to run. It only allow me to do some configuration about the enlightenment windows manager. No more, I can't see firefox, openoffice, gimp, even command prompt.

I gave up, wanna to login back gnome or kde, finally I saw something additional like E-KDE, E-Gnome as login option (previously only have KDE and Gnome). Then I try login and the result is enlightenment need kde or gnome run on top of it. Then I have enlightenment feel in gnome and kde.

However, I feel not convenient and go back to normal windows manager.

If I'm wrong somebody please correct me.
