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.

What really gets me is the horrible installation process. Open up the terminal, install this and that and that... f*ck off!


1995 wants it's FUD back.

I want a normal installation package - like the ones you can find on Mac and windows. Download, double click, next, next, password and done.


Ah, you mean just like when you click on a .deb file in Ubuntu or Kubuntu and it just installs the application? Heck, it even downloads needed pre-requisites for you.

I couldn't get it to work!!


PEBKAC.

Since you obviously have no idea what you're talking about and obviously haven't used a mainstream distro in the last 10 years or so you should stop flaunting your ignorance.
