    Enlightenment was way ahead of almost anything else for quite a long time ... back in the 90's it was exceptional ... many of the desktops based on it were beautiful, works of art, better than most desktops of today from any OS. That was a time when Apple was something everyone called "dead" and the best from MS was that kludgy Win95 thing ... Enlightenment seemed to me like something that should have made a much bigger impact than it did, I'm not sure if it's because it seemed to permanently stay in alpha or something.

    Every now and then I check out the website, because I want to see screenshots of it in action.
    For some reason, I don't think there is a link /anywhere/ to the screenshots.
    In case anyone else is interested, there /are/ screenshots on the website; they are here:
