  • E16 is an old school desktop window manager that can't be beat. Simple unix style text based configuration. Fast and works well with all the latest software. Thank you for maintaining this project.

  • Have used e16 as my preferred WM for over a decade. Still cannot find a WM to replace it.

  • Always loyal to e16, love it for it's light weight and customisation. Tried other but none gives me the flexibility i need. e16 4ever

  • Ah, Enlightenment. The original e16 release. Flashy, and colorful even today let alone back in the day when it was first released! The only thing about it is that I can't wrap my head around the icon box and systemtray. Wasn't a fan of them but e16 appeals to my minimalism and tint2 which works fabulously with it is all I need. So that's not even a nitpick. 5 stars, it's my go-to desktop now.

  • Nice, thank you
