Enlightenment (also known simply as E), is a free software/open source window manager for the X Window System. It can be used alone or together with a desktop environment such as GNOME or KDE. Enlightenment is sometimes used as a replacement for a full desktop environment.

History[change | change source]

The first version of Enlightenment was released by Raster (Carsten Haitzler) on 1996-10-30.[3]
