| Have you ever dreamed of Compiz-like effects in Enlightenment 17 ?
| After a good number of previous testing versions, reports, fixes, and
| features added, Elive finally releases the special version with E17 running
| over Compiz (ecomorph).

First Look: Elive E17 Compiz

,----[ Quote ]
| If you've read the latest Softpedia Linux Weekly you probably remember the
| video clip of the week showing a lot of awesome desktop effects. Wait, don't
| leave just yet. I know you're sick of all those
| Compiz Fusion praising videos that are everywhere on the Internet but this
| time it's a little different. We're talking about a distribution and its
| desktop environment that didn't cross ways with Compiz. Until now. Yep, there
| is a special Elive E17 bundled with all the good 3D stuff. Knowing Elive's
| reputation of being one of the most beautiful and stylish distributions out
| there, what can really go wrong if you combine two of Linux's most valuable
| eye-candy providers?
| After watching that video, we decided to put it to the test on one of our
| machines to see if all that buzz around it was really worth it. For more fun,
| the test PC was sort of a prehistoric one with 512 MB of RAM and an Nvidia
| GeForce FX 5200 (yeah...). Well, it wasn't just for fun, but it was also a
| very good way to evaluate Elive's performance under such extreme conditions.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
