Whatever happened to the hype on /g/ for Elementary OS?
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.
>putting window controls to different edges
>you want minimize? fuck you, go enable it yourself manually
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.
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.

Tell me which of these work on Linux, and if they don't, tell me about your superior taste in video games.
oh there's also this thing? eOS can go fuck itself.
ladies and gents, Haze OS
ricing indians, man
Been using Luna for nearly two years.
It is everything I need for browsing and occasional tunes.
TBH ChromeOS would probably work just as well.

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).
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.

So it's a desktop environment then, not a distro. Thanks for clarifying.
>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.
No its a distro. They write a new DE and nearly all default applications over the ubuntu kernel and core libs.
>shilling for free software.
I agree with that. 14.04 should be their base now.
>their devs are retards

Pantheon is literally Gnome with a few adjustments.
