   Interesting.  I had no idea that Enlightenment was anything more than a 
particularly spiffy window manager.

   Not sure what to make of this though (from the site):

  "Enlightenment is a window manager. Enlightenment is a desktop shell. 
Enlightenment is the building blocks to create beautiful applications. 
Enlightenment, or simply *e*, is a group of people trying to make a new 
generation of software."

   What is it, a GUI or a cult?  And, "E"?  Um...

There's also this list:

...but pretty much all of them are LGPL.  (wxWidgets is some form of 
"relaxed LGPL" though.)
