I can attest to both the quality and speed of Bodhi Linux. I've been running it on my netbook since some of the first betas became available. The minimal resource usage is terrific, especially on a netbook, and the eyecandy effects of enlightenment are great conversation starters with non-linux people. They are always surprised at the speed of my little netbook. But mostly it is a fast, stable, pretty environment that doesn't get in my way and lets me work as I need to. I just wish there was a 64 bit version I could use on my desktop.

Try it.

I have been using E17 with Gentoo for a long time, unfortunately you had to pull it in from a overlay that didn't always like the newest portage. With the advent of E17 1.0 it has been added to the distro repository. Of course it comes with all the advantages and disadvantages of using Gentoo.
