Linux

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.

I'm glad this was posted to OSnews. It was the first place I read about the release.

Elementary OS is a great distribution. I used Luna extensively, skipped Freya, but will be testing out Loki for sure. It's hands-down my favourite example of a really elegant Linux desktop interface. At the moment, my main machine is running pure Ubuntu 16.04, but with the Unity bar hidden, Plank running, and looking pretty much like Elementary OS.

I'm glad these guys are still working hard on their distribution.
