    Talking

    Great news. All they need to do is improve file manager and add more modules by default, some fancy useless stuff I wonder what's their plans after releasing e17. Browser, music,video player, text editor based on efl would be nice too. Oh and please some fancy terminal emulator

    Media apps apart there are some more "basic" stuff needed in E. A native NM app would be nice for example. (yes i know there is conman) Also the login manager needs some love. I heard they were working again on Entrance but have no idea if its prime time ready. And yeah. The theme is a bit meh..

    The buttons for example could look like:

    What for... GTK-based and QT-based work fine, if you install lxappearance and qt4-config and set good themes...

    As you later said "VLC works fine so i don't care much", same for Audacious or XMMS2.. they work fine...

    Leafpad. GTK2, but at 15MiB/instance with offering most what basic text editor should do, while staying slick..

    We have like 15 terminal emulators.....! Seriously....!!

    The right thing for them to do would be to:
    a) work on bugs.
    b) polish integration with drivers. Yes, Intel OpenGL composition can be unstable sometimes.
    c) add more nice modules to put on the bar. Maybe not XMMS2 front-end, but tray module, and such mini-trayonly-plasmoids.

    Firefox Qt??? Is this still alive.

    As for all the other things you mention i like to have consistent looks and behavior on my desktop, at least for apps i use most of the time. An EFL (telepathy based) chat app would also be nice for example.
