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?

Stutter al over

When i saw the video about the instantly starting programs i was enthusiastic to try it out myself. But now I have it installed on one of my partitions (which I use to tryout new operating systems), I am quit disappointed. The instantly starting programs actually take quiet some time to open, the smoothness is nowhere to be found and I have a lot of stutter. Ubuntu is more smooth and also my primary OS Debian works better. Conclusion: Not really to recommend
