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.

Maybe not identical, but certainly derivative.

That's pretty bad. I'm looking to STOP using OS X in the home -- Everything at work is FBSD and Linux and I've been using FBSD since the 90s in one form or another. This is not what I want to see when I finally pull the trigger.
