Linux The Elementary OS team has released their latest offering, Luna, which has been in development for a while now. Based on Ubuntu, this Linux distribution aims to develop its own minimalist applications, but it goes beyond that - it has its own desktop environment, window manager, human interface guidelines, APIs, and more. There's an article on their blog detailing the road to Luna.

They've managed to build quite some hype, so let's see if it lives up to it. Does anyone here use it?

as a long-time OS X user, felt at home right away, nice OS X rip-off (down to some icons, although redrawn, looking very familiar)
some stuff is missing though, like option to move the dock to the left/right ;)
vmware performance OK, curious about the performance on old netbook crap I own.
