You need to try KDE4 again very soon with the new KXStudio ISO!
It's coming!!!
falk, you know i give every one of your releases a spin the day it drops! I'm always looking for something better, but at the moment I've switched to Arch. I just hope the best parts of your work keep making it into the AUR! But I'm always looking for something better, so I'll give it a spin real soon! (I even updated my kxstudio install tutorial thread, in the How-To forum, indicating KDE users should wait for your upcoming release if they're looking for the best install option!)

Well, it was beta. Can't find any bug anymore


DE is a personal thing....I never liked LXDE for example, it's simple, but "too simple" (in means od configuration) for me and has no look.
I like KDE4 but it's too heavy for me. I want a fast reacting DE

New concept? Enlightenment is older than Gnome and KDE!

With respect, I used it for several _months_ & I still maintain that it is counter intuitive. I regard that time as time wasted & am sure many on this list would have given up far sooner than I did. People hop distro's in less time.

I had LXDE up, customised to my taste & running in less than an hour. This in a distro where it is not the main DE - & usually these are the 'poor relatives' & do not work so well.

nope. none is older than kde. it predates E (as a DE) by one year at least. fact is rasterman started working on the elightment-libs earlier (mid-90s) but trolltech's qt was already kicking way, way before (early-90s).

I have Ubuntu Studio 12.04 and want to give a try to E17; I readed all the comments in this post and didn't find the answer to my question: Can I still use the same programs and the low-latency kernel when I switch to E17? (without removing the XCFE that comes by default in Ubuntu Studio)

Of course! (unless it wants to remove related packages, but I highly doubt it).

The start-menu will most likely be different, maybe not even list the non-e17 apps (no idea about this...).

afaik when you install a new Desktop, you just select it in the login screen.
the desktop will probably bring its own apps, which will clutter the system a bit (ie, a wide range of apps that do the same, like text edit, calculator, etc).
but this is mostly HDD space
Ok, but if I don't want these new apps surely I can remove them, isn't it? I get in touch with Enlightenment with Elive, a few years back, and really love its beauty, so I'm happy they give us this new release; and it's a fact I don't like XCFE.

first, your programs will appear in the menu

second, E17 is modular; any part of it can be choosen to not being loaded at startup

In the interest of fairness, Bodhi has just done a big update to Enlightenment & it does seem to be a big improvement. Still some issues with default icons. I may try & see how a clean install does when I next have time.

EDIT: Five minutes later - already had a crash that required a wm restart & problems with a process (eval_image_load) using up to 96% processor power. Back in to LXDE. Pity as I like the idea of Bodhi but I am still waiting for it to work.

there is now an Arch/E17 live CD distro.
So any interest in trying Arch+E17, this might be good to download:
