OS X inspired Linux distribution
Just thought I would share this with the MAC community.
The other day I was looking for a small, lightweight linux distribution to replace Windows7 with on my girlfriends netbook. It was slow and had some problems with the video drivers after 20min of use to a state of unusable with constant flickering.
A few distros came to mind such as Ubuntu, Mint, Lubuntu etc,. Being a longtime Mac user I thought Linux Mint was the only distribution for her which actually does a decent job in the UI department and would make it easy to use on a delay basis.
After a couple hours of reading through forum posts and searching for information just to see if this little Acer Aspire can run it I came across a distribution called "Elementary OS Luna".
I went through their screenshots and was impressed by how much "inspired" they are by OSX. I have to admit the designers had a serious eye for detail.
Here is a video tour of the OS:
I installed it with no problem. It's fast and I actually felt right at home thanks to the very similar look and feel of OSX .
So, if you have an old PC laptop/netbook and want to have a OSX feel, I would suggest downloading it now before it goes mainstream and Apple shuts them down for being "too inspired".
What do you guys think of this?
