For kicks I built E17. It runs on my AMD64 machine and looks fairly
nice but many of the basic windowing operations seem sort of slow
compared to Gnome.
I suppose there are instructions around for how to build some menus
but default out of the box it didn't give me access to any
applications other than Firefox and a terminal so it is very minimal.
I didn't look yet at what sort of memory footprint it might have.
Since it seems slower than Gnome I wasn't that interested.
Just my 2 cents,
