Enlightenment DR17

Early morning Sunday hackery to get enlightenment 0.17 desktop environment running on Fedora Core 3 was a success.

This is definitely the coolest graphical environment I have seen so far in any OS environment (except for the Mac OSX). These guys are freaking insane. Where do they get the inspiration for this stuff????? Wow! Wow! Wow!

Right now I have snow falling transparently on my desktop. Title bars which flash sideways when I shift focus. A Mac OSX like iconbar which is soooo smooth (unlike the iconbar in gdeklets).

Everything is so classy! Thats the word – CLASSY!

I have been trying for ages to get it working on FreeBSD at office but the autofoo stuff keeps breaking things. Have loads of time next week to butcher autofoo and make it work. This is too irrestibable to be confined only to my laptop.

Damn, GTK and QT sure spoil the e17 desktop! 🙂
