Loki is the newest version of elementary OS, a design-oriented and open source Linux-based operating system for desktops and laptops. It succeeds Freya which was released in April of 2015.


ts and implemented over 20 blueprints. Altogether, these represent stability and security improvements, better internationalization, new features and options, and much more.

A great team doing great work. Elementary OS isn't exactly a good fit for the "I compile my own kernel every morning"-type Linux users, but for the more turnkey people among us, it's certainly worth a try.

Aw, that's a bit ungenerous, isn't it? It has its own UI and desktop and a bunch of apps. Looks like a lot of work, and looks nice too.

I think the point anyway was about those things, as opposed to kernels and booting and software repositories, etc...
