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.

I wouldn't go as far as saying that, since most of the software I use on a daily basis was coded by the people's army and works fairly well.


Most of it? You must use a lot of GNU utilities. Most of the open source software I use was built by corporations like Google and then released as open source to the public.
