When Enlightenment met Ubuntu

I used to use Enlightenment, but found it too hard to configure and use for a power user like myself. Like the article said about Gnome being bloaty, Enlightenment is, no pun intended, lighting fast as a desktop, but it's too buggy for my tastes. Another thing that I don't like is the fact that many of the configuration files are not text based, so it's very difficult to customize the way I'm used to. Although, it is very sharp looking, and it is nice to see a project expanding with Enlightenment. Perhaps it will be able to mature a little more with some support from a distribution bundling it. I wish them luck in the future.
