Since before all other interfaces, Enlightenment has been making computers look and feel like they're from the future. On December 21, the decade long effort to rewrite Enlightenment will see the first officially stable release. With e17 a few days away, project founder and master of X11 graphics hacking Carsten Haitzler (the Rasterman) has agreed to answer your questions. Ask as many questions as you like, but only one per post please.

    After looking at the screenshots [enlightenment.org], I don't understand what the fuss is all about. If that's supposed to represent the future I need to remind you that we're in 2012.

    From the screenshots, I'd say it looks a bit better than Windows 98, but not any better than current GUIs from all three major operating systems.

Is it possible that software is not like anything else, that it is meant to be discarded: that the whole point is to always see it as a soap bubble?
