I run E17.  It is beta so just be aware you will have issues.  I find it to be fast and at the moment relatively stable.  There is no tab support in terminology, but I used screen to get round that issue.

It would help if you said why you want to consider E17 - i had a bitter 
experience with it. I use xfce for a lighter desktop which i much prefer now to 
gnome. You will be compiling and doing the testing with E17 - xfce is well 
tried and proven straight from the install disk (you're bound to have some 
conflicts and problems somewhere installing E17). Could try several desktop and 
see which you prefer - selection is always on the login window under 'session'.
