E16 is a very stable and working desktop, less featured but offers also a very nice (and different) experience
As somebody recently suggested (@triantares? i don't remember) , it should be announcement like something unique and special, why not?!
The Debian-based distribution Elive 2.0 not only convinces with a deadly appearance, but also with an unusually sophisticated user interface.
So yeah, maybe the new alpha (beta) versions should be announced like an unique & new different desktop experience bla bla
@Rebel450 is good with words for that
I will collect here a few sentences that can be used for the announcement, feel free to add more:
There is definitely something unique in using e16 as the (default?) desktop ... no other distro does that.
the E16 environnement/shortcuts/epager/etc is a very very efficient desktop
