One of the best things about Linux is providing the user with the freedom of choice. You can choose from a variety of desktop environments the one that perfectly suits your tastes and needs. The Enlightenment desktop is not for everyone, especially the new linux users, but it isn’t that complicated either. That’s because it offers powerful flexibility in how to setup and use your operating system. It’s also lightweight so it will run on older computers just as well as on powerful multi-core desktop systems.
