I guess someone is bound to ask the obvious, might as well be me. If the EFL frontend is basically offering the same functionality but addng support running well on platforms without 3D support. What is the argument for continuing developing and deploying the clutter based frontend. The developer makes them sound similar and that in return sounds like maintaining twice the amount of code for the same job.
@David Nielsen: It’s a good question as you also can use a GLES 2.0 backend with EFL if it proves to be faster on your target than the incredibly fast software backend. Anyhow, using EFL for this was certainly a wise technical decision.
I just tested netbook-launcher-efl on my Lucid LTSP terminal – works great!! This UI design has the potential to be incredibly intuitive for youngsters, not just netbooks. I can see it really taking off in LTSP school deployments.
