    Arrow How do you prefer to use the Enlightenment WM? (A Multiple Choice e Poll)

    I thought this would be a great time for a fun & hopefully informative poll for the Community Cafe:

    How do you prefer to use the Enlightenment WM?


    I use Enlightenment WM via the distro/s of my choice (other then the e distros listed below).

    Via OzOS.

    Via Maryan Linux.

    Via OpenGEU.

    Via Elive.

    Via Yellow Dog Linux.

    Via BSDanywhere .

    Via the Enlightenment LiveCD (based on OpenSUSE-11.0).

    I have never used the Enlightenment WM but plan to try one of the above selected.

    I have tried Enlightenment but prefer another Desktop Environment/WM (KDE, XFCE, IceWM, Fluxbox, Rat Poison, Gnome, other)

    It's interesting that there are only three Enlightenment Users on all of Ubuntu Forums, or only three that voted in this poll?

    I've used Enlightenment with OzOS and Elive briefly, for a long time I preferred Xfce, but now I mostly use Gnome.

    I've tried - and liked - e16, e17 with Redhat/Fedora, Ubuntu and OpenGeu but always had stability issues. The OzOs looks interesting though, I'll have to give it a try.

    I love E17. I prefer it on Arch, but I also liked it when I used it on OzOS and Maryan Linux.

    Interesting to see the new results after a bit more participation:

    Of the people who do use the Enlightenment WM the majority like to use it in the Distro of their choice:

    Via the distro/s of my choice (other then the e distros listed below). 5 out of 25
    Then for the people who like to use an Elightenment based Distro, this tied with:

    Via OzOS. 4 out of 25

    &

    Via OpenGEU. 4 out of 25
    Not surprisingly (in a Gnome based forum) the majority choose to not use Enlightenment:

    I have tried Enlightenment but prefer another Desktop Environment/WM. 11 out of 25
    Another interesting note for all the Gnome lovers, OzOS has a minimalistic Gnome-Desktop-Package so OzOS is actually a more efficient Gnome Desktop then plain vanilla Ubuntu. So if you like Gnome and you like efficiency then you may want to give OzOS a spin and install the Gnome-Desktop-Package. If you like Gnome your going to love OzOS on Gnome.

    Polls are always fun and entertaining and a tiny bit informative.

    I tried it, I think it is very pretty and sleek, but I use a wm xmonad that is the opposite. I don't see anything when I use it and focus on usability.

    I keep up with OzOS because I am an advocate of Linux and I like how it looks and think it is a good way to wow people and other's may want to use it.

    It appears that a introspective update is in order:

    Of the people who do use the Enlightenment WM the majority like to use it via OzOS:
    Via OzOS. 20.69%
    followed by people who use the Enlightenment WM in the Distro of their choice:

    Via the distro/s of my choice 17.24%
    Respectively.
