I love look and feel of e17, found it almost breathtaking in fact, and would love to make e17 my default WM. But alas, it seems stuck in a permanent dev stage, last I checked anyway. Please, do send me an async callback when it's ready. Til then I'll muddle through with other WMs

I always thought e was a nice wm. Not the best for me right now (hooray for fluxbox), but definitely one of the nicer ones. I remember being quite disappointed back in the days when I used gnome when they dumped e as the default wm for it.

They dumped e in favor of Sawfish (nee Sawmill), which I still run. Who'da thunk you could build a window manager in LISP?

Aside: I can't stand Metacity. It's too simplistic in it's "but of course, you want to do that THIS way, right?" approach. Many reasons for which I revile MS Windows also apply to Metacity.
