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.

Oh you must be confused. OS X only gets upgraded once every 2 years. It's Linux that must be constantly updated, like a flowing river, to run the latest apps.


Actually, you're wrong as usual. Linux isn't a app driven OS.

It's a *FEATURE* driven OS. People like you don't understand the difference and why Linux works the way it does and thus it (Linux) confuses the hell out of you due to your (quite) limited mental abilities.

Let me explain. People don't usally download and install Linux or the BSD's because of FireFox,Open Office or any of the other reasons *CLUELESS PINHEADS* like yourself think they do.

They download and install them *BECAUSE THEY WANT TO*

Like I said this is a reason losers like yourself will *NEVER* get or understand.

Does your mother know you are on the 'net spouting nonsense again? Your posts on this thread have, by far, been the most ignorant, pointless and childish ones here. You're completely off the mark every time but then I imagine there are few targets you can hit.

Ahh well, I hear guys act like big blow hards when they have teeny, tiny little.... distros.
