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.

Explain this tutorial for a minor upgrade then:

As I said before, a lot of Linux tutorials are written by CLI freaks who never miss an occasion to use command-line and hand-editing of config files even if they obviously don't need too. I just can't count the number of occurences of this. They say that it's because it ensures that it works on all configurations. I just wonder why they don't just provide easily-runnable script shells along with their tutorials then.

That tutorial was needed for Ubuntu users that wanted to upgrade Firefox. They couldn't simply click 'upgrade' like in Windows and OSX.
