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?

The Mac "close button doesn't close app" thing pissed me off the first time I had to deal with it, but I grew to love it because it streamlined my workflow and saved my ass a couple of times.

I do think Elementary should make it easier to add a minimize button for the masses, but I don't miss it. I'm more of an alt+tab-er than a minimizer; in fact I'm more at home at the keyboard than the mouse owing to my first 12 or so years of computing at a command prompt. I didn't use a GUI on a regular basis until around 1994.
