Enlightenment's Elementary, EFL 1.9 Beta 2
Phoronix: Enlightenment's Elementary, EFL 1.9 Beta 2
The latest beta is now out for the Enlightenment Foundation Libraries...
E19 is quite a nice self contained DE/WM, also check out it's Tiling v2 module (disabled per default) and give the dev feedback.
I played a bit with E18 and 19 this week for the nice composite effects and tot test opengl accell with radeon, but then switched back to notion (ion3) because it doesn't get in the way as much and has tabbed tiles.
Even without OpenGL acceleration (crashes upon enabling) this is a really nice WM.
Check out the last NEWS entry, it's being parsed... . Joke?
Hmmm, interesting. Works fine for me with OpenGL acceleration.

The alternative would be the nVidia blob. No thank you. I'm aware the pre nv50 mesa drivers are not really 'top notch' (they said themselfs on IRC). It is unfortunate, but I can live with that.

i have nv50 card
use the official driver, nouveau is not stable enough yet
i cant wait thou till it is as then i will get better, more clear and precise, perf data
for opengl it will be amazing
I can live without an OpenGL WM and this with nouveau right now thank you.
