"The Enlightenment development team announced that it has released its newest version, 0.16, of the Enlightenment window manager for Linux (and other UNIX environments), making a major leap in the visual possibilities offered in graphical desktop environments today."

"The premise behind Enlightenment is simple: users are given unprecedented control and flexibility in configuring how their desktops should look, feel and behave. For example, users can specify exactly how window borders, titlebars, and buttons look, how they move, and how they work. Users can use desktop themes downloaded from Internet sites such as e.themes.org...or create their own themes, and set their user preferences in Enlightenment through convenient dialogs."

"The initial response to Enlightenment 0.16 has been very enthusiastic," said Carsten Haitzler (Rasterman), one of the developers of Enlightenment. "Many people have commented that 0.16 not only looks dazzling -- it also serves as a solid, functional graphical shell. It demonstrates that you can have your desktop be functional, configurable and aesthetically pleasing."
