You may have tried to use 0.15.x themes with 0.16.x. A common mistake,
and some naughty theme authors mislabel their themes as 0.16
compliant. Just edit ~/.enlightenment/user_theme.cfg to fix.

Not a good question to ask. It's very much like asking what football
team is best, or what religion is nice :) You'll likely:

o Get 15 different answers from a hundred different people
o Get different descriptions of the same thing from different people.
o Receive wildly conflicting and often spurious answers from everyone.
o Provoke normally harmless and peaceful individuals into
  emotion-ridden outbursts and violence
o Get nowhere fast =)

I repeat my earlier statement, spend a few days with each, and choose
whichever suits you best. GNOME-compliant themeable choices include:

Black Box
Window maker
Afterstep (latest version is mostly compliant afaik)

In no particular order. I may have missed some.
