    How far in development is Enlightenment?

    I was wondering how 'grown up' Enlightenment is.
    It looks and works absolutely wonderful, but there are a few little glitches here and there, but we've only been using it for a day or two now.
    Are there big things to come, is E17 considered useful?

    This is more curiosity than anything else, it's not a production machine on which it is installed, but rather on a nice little PIII laptop with 384MB memory [shared with the graphics card] etc.

    I must say, E17 screams on that little laptop, and with all those great effects and themes too. It's truly amazing what they have accomplished so far.

    e has been "almost done" for years.

    It's permanent alpha-ware.
    Favorite man page quote: "The backreference \n, where n is a single digit, matches the substring previously matched by the nth parenthesized subexpression of the regular expression." [excerpt from grep(1)]

    Yea, I've read about it.
    But it does have a good few little things that make it a little annoying to use at times [menu's that 'fall' off the right side of the screen for instance], which is a shame.

    It'll probably never be production ready, moves to fast, that's a good thing.
    Just use it and have fun.

    How are updates handled? Just like normal system updates?

    It really is great fun to use it.
