When Enlightenment met Ubuntu

I have been trying to use OpenGEU (as Geubuntu was renamed to) off and on for the last month since seeing this post. It is definitely buggy, especially with Java software, which I do development in. Windows get stuck open, the new fbpanel app doesn't always paint right and is difficult to use, hot keys don't work correctly in Eclipse, it is difficult to add menu items to anything except the defaults, fingerprint reader doesn't function, etc. The one time I tried Entrance, it locked up my system.

However, visually OpenGEU is quite nice and has tons of options. As much as I want to use it, I keep going back to Gnome because it just works.
