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.

No, but you must be to think willingly upgrading OS X on my schedule and being able to upgrade apps ANY TIME along the way, independent of that, is somehow equal to being forced to upgrade a distro like Ubuntu every 6 months in order to get the latest apps. It's absurd.

OS X, and even WIndows, offers so much more flexibility and freedom in this area that it's not even funny.
