Why enlightenment?

I've used debian and it worked, although screen locking was not
implemented yet and most of the functionality is placed in an applet
which is not at all finger friendly, but ok.

I did an update (apt-get update, apt-get dist-upgrade) and that
destroyed my xsession configuration and left me with only a terminal.
That is when I decided to try switching back to the main stream and try
to at least start using it as a phone.

In doing that I was so disappointed by it that I couldn't help but start
this thread. As most have pointed out, I'll probably be heading back
because this is what freedom is all about (as soon as the next FSO
milestone is reached I'll probably give it another try).

Thank you for your reply.
