Linux "The Elive Linux distribution combines beauty with ease of use. Elive is based on Debian and uses Enlightenment as its windows manager, which gives the distribution a Mac OS X look and feel. Elive comes with dozens of easy-to-use desktop applications that just work. Elive started as a live CD, but now at version 1.0 it works well as a standard hard drive installation. The latest unstable ISO, 1.5, should be released shortly."

In fact, it -is- like osx if you use the E16 desktop. It as a dock (engage) and osx like wm. E17 is nice to, but feel less like osx.

I really like elive, it is the first live-cd i will try on a computer to see if everything work or to backup a dieing windows install. I also like the software choice. It is the only distribution that include cinelerra and the right codec pack to prevent it from crashing every 2 minute.

If you want to discover something new, i suggest to try this live CD, it feel unique, not like all those clone live-cd packed with almost default gnome or kde setting
