Enlightenment: Refreshing!

Post by Trogdor » Mon Feb 16, 2004 12:50 am

I've been a dedicated fluxbox user for quite a while. Before that, it was ROX-Session, IceWM, WM, Gnome, XFCE, KDE, et al. I decided to try enlightenment yesterday, and I fell in love (on valentine's day . . . cool, huh?). Enlightenment is a really good balance between eye-candy and being light on ram. Lots of things are animated, and it is just . . . cool! I did a test on RAM, just to see which of enlightenment, fluxbox, and KDE were the lightest on ram. It, by no means, is a scientific study, just an ignoramus's procedure of closing all programs, opening an xterm and less /proc/meminfo. Here are the results:

Memory Free (not used):
KDE: 65349 kB
Fluxbox: 117592 kB
Enlightenment: 143440 kB (!!!!!)

Give 'e' a try. It is a pretty fast emerge, and you won't be dissapointed!

When you don't know what to do, cd to /usr/share and have a look about!
