(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:

As a kind of a sequel, I have done a clean Bodhi install on a laptop & E17 is doing much better. Interesting as it pretty much proves an upgrade is not as good as a clean install, even with deleting configuration files.
