"Enlightenment, often referred to as E, is a highly
customizable window manager for X Windows. In fact, Enlightenment,
in both philosophy of the developers and in the product itself, is
one of the most configurable window managers available. Both look
and feel can be adjusted to fit your own tastes."
"One of the popular myths about Enlightenment is that it is slow
due to the many graphic customizations available. This is not true.
When used with older processors and less memory, E still performs
well when not used on top of GNOME or KDE. This is where the
"Enlightenment is slow" myth comes from. When used on top of GNOME
or KDE on older systems, Enlightenment will be considerably slower
than when used by itself."
"Which brings us to E compatibility with GNOME and KDE.
Enlightenment has built in support for the GNOME and KDE desktop
environments with version 0.16. This means that you can run GNOME
and KDE applications as well as the taskbars and file managers
native to both environments under Enlightenment. By default, KDE
support is turned off however, so be sure to turn this on and
restart E if you want to use it on top of KDE. (To do this enter
eesh -e 'kde on' at the command prompt.)"
