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.

There's 200,000 iphone/ipad developers, hitting them up for code on linux would be a decent way to expand the developerbase of linux.

We have Mono already, and it seems gazillions of Windows developers didn't suddenly start writing Linux applications.

BTW, how do the GNUStep guys feel about recent actions of Apple? Do they still feel objc ecosystem is something they want to support on their volunteer time?
