Enlightenment 16 :arrow: THE ORGINAL ENLIGHTENMENT :!: :wink:

Nowadays HITCH-HIKED by a so called Entlightenment17 18 19 20 ... 22, what ever. It's a total other WM :twisted: :evil:
Years of both slotted under the same name... the hitch-hikers kicked the ORIGINAL Enlightenment out

Now :cry: it is only available through this unofficial overlay :cry: :oops:
Enlightenment DR16 Gentoo Overlay

To install the overlay:

layman -o https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mcclung/e16-overlay/master/repositories.xml -f -a e16-overlay

i3

I've used so many different WMs over the years, eventually settling with Enlightenment for a long time (15, 16, both 17s, 19, Moksha). Also Gnome & KDE at times. But once I started using i3 I simply had no need for anything else.

i3 is perfectly elegant.

My latest destination through the WM/DE Lemarchand Configuration has left me with i3.

I may next take a look at some of the *box WMs. But that may quickly lead to repeating old mistakes.

I have dwm installed, but recompiling just to change the configuration makes it unusable. I'm keeping it around for possible attempts at development.

Xmonad is interesting, but I don't think now is the time to dive into Haskell (similar with awesome/lua).

Been using openbox for the past few years, though I'm none too impressed by the jankiness compton adds.

xfce and fvwm, with occasional forays (and frustrations) into other DEs and WMs. Currently giving Windowmaker another run.

When I was using Manjaro, from this August until last week, I was using its i3 community version. But now, in Gentoo, I wanted to try Bspwm. And I'm happy with it so far.
