Are you asking me?

I'm on a very old laptop, a Toshiba Satellite Pro 4300 (I think), 500Mhz 
Celeron. I tried a myriad different wm's, but none of them really were 
what I was searching for (but they worked all). I didn't try KDE/Gnome, 
because my old laptop would not be able to handle them, and have 
functionality I'm not looking for.

While enlightenment-devel still has its bugs (for instance 'lock screen' 
really does, it won't accept any password as valid - but it doesn't 
hang) it's fast, small, cool :-)
