Linux Linux Magazine has a profile of Daniel Fore and the Elementary project. Elementary is a Linux distro that's committed to a clean and simple user experience, but it's more than a distro - it's actually a multi-pronged effort to make improvements to the user experience for a whole ecosystem of components, including icons, a GTK theme, Midori improvements, Nautilus, and even Firefox. The work that elementary is doing isn't limited to their own distro, and some of their work is available in current, and perhaps future, Ubuntu releases. The results are really striking, and I think it's probably the handsomest Linux UI I've ever seen.

Can we come up with something besides ripping off OSX? That Screenshot looks identical to 10.6, even the icons are clones of the Mac. Apple Computer...err sorry "Apple, Inc." is not the end all of UI design. Some people don't like how the top and bottom panels work in GNOME but at least its something different from some candy coated dock that looks great for the first year and then just becomes annoying to use. (dock icons bounce in my nightmares)
