they decided to name it Freya instead of ISIS.

Also, Deepin is nicer looking.

I been using Freya 0.3 Beta for a few months now. Still get hyped about the daily updates.

i liked elementary when i tried it, haven't tried Freya and it hasn't really been on my radar. figured there was a lull in development while they were working on something or..somthing

ayy lmao!!!!!

The devs stopped shilling.

That said there's nothing to hype. They made a nice DE but you'll have to live with ancient packages to use it.

>putting window controls to different edges

their reasoning -or lack of it- on how to use a desktop computer is inane. they should've stayed with the ISIS name. that's what they are, in terms of crippling the user.

It's a function that sure as fuck does not belong on the title bar by default.

I know I'd way rather be using a riced out WM because window management in GNOME is shit.

>>45316377
I'm serious, minimizing something serves no purpose whatsoever.

The only practical use I can see is if you somehow are actually retarded enough to need it to switch focus to an occluded window.

If minimize is a useful function to you, your use of the mouse is on the level of hunt and peck keyboarding.

Deepin is more beautiful and Elementary OS is just a mac os x clone which doesnt look good on a desktop pc.

Also I use Debian.

It is everything I need for browsing and occasional tunes.

TBH ChromeOS would probably work just as well.

I don't really understand the appeal. It just looks like an OSX skin over any other Linux distro. What's so special about it?

Basing it off Ubuntu was a mistake; that POS distro is patched to fuck in order to get it working with their Unity interface.

/g/ finally realized it was just Ubuntu with a different default DE and a custom theme.
>>
>>45321731
if so, it really took long for /g/ to figure that out.
>>
>>45321769
Of course. There are still people who refuse to use Ubuntu because it "looks shit" or "Unity sucks" and then installing Xubuntu, Kubuntu or Lubuntu and overwriting their entire installation just because they fail to realize that you can install any DE you like from the repos (and remove the one you've installed and don't want).
>>
>>45321796
>>45321769
I'm waiting for /g/ to realize that Linux Mint is just a stripped down, less supported Ubuntu with a different default GNOME theme.
>>
>>45321796
Can't aargue with that, since I main a riced Ubuntu Gnome.

I'm seriously considering changing to elementary when freya releases, but i dont know if its worth it.
>>
>>45314110

Wow, this thread is trash.

They are working on the new freya release, and itll be ready when its ready.

Calling it a clone or a skin doesnt do it justice. The devs actually think out and write their Applications in a uniform toolkit. Their applications remove a lot of junk like excessive menus and clutter, and are consistent in their form and function. The DE is smooth and clean.

Its well worth a try if you want a smooth linux based desktop.
>>
>>45321927
>The devs actually think out and write their Applications in a uniform toolkit. Their applications remove a lot of junk like excessive menus and clutter
So it's a desktop environment then, not a distro. Thanks for clarifying.
>>
>>45321927
>eOS shills on /g/ again
It's literally an Ubuntu clone with default riced DE, their updates aren't even in a timely manner, Freya was supposed to release alongside or a tad after 14.04 that was 6 months ago now. The developers are retards and nobody should even bother contemplating using this shit.
>>
>>45321934

No its a distro. They write a new DE and nearly all default applications over the ubuntu kernel and core libs.

>>45321948
>shilling for free software.
ok kid.
>untimely updates
I agree with that. 14.04 should be their base now.
>their devs are retards
Why?

Pantheon is literally Gnome with a few adjustments.

Pic related.

This would make it a DE only. A DE includes all the default applications.
