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.

Apple spends tons of money on usability, designers, GUI I+D and so on... Linux desktops must reimplement Mac OS X desktop. That's all.

Please Linux developers/vendors... don't waste precious resources reinventing the wheel. Just rip Apple off!!
