E17 didn't change a lot since it was the default for the JAD installing
media some years ago, KDE did change a lot. Yes e17 has got potential,
that's why I'm using it again, but it's very experimental. I don't like
crashs when I try to chose fonts, I like to chose fonts etc., something
that isn't fine for e17.
All those "show my desktops as a cube and add rain to my windows" and
make all windows transparent needs proprietary drivers, okay, KWin is
able to do transparency too, but it still isn't a "show my desktops as a
cube and add rain to my windows" DE.
Just my 2 cents.
