    Hell, I donated 10USD. Well deserved for making the most attractive desktop distro.

      Great looking OS! I'm hoping Pantheon DE hits the main Arch repos sometime soon.

        This sentence is so wrong that it's funny. Really good HCI is definitely technical innovation, even more so when we are talking about Linux distros.
        I couldn't agree more. Michael: you're great at benchmarking. No need to show off your ignorance in other matters. The Elementary team is all about usability, not "beauty". Of course, beauty comes as a result, but they're not especially original in their beauty aspects. They are, indeed, when it comes to coherence and consistency.

        EDIT: And btw, this is not their final release of Luna, but its Beta 2. It's right there, at the post you link. You have a long way in front of you to become a journalist...

        EDIT2: Actually, it's the final release, but your link to the blog is wrong. Here's the right link: http://elementaryos.org/journal/the-road-to-luna

          I'm glad there are people in the Linux world who care about interaction design.

            I use elementary OS/Desktop since before beta 1 and it is just beautiful to look at and beautiful to use. Really, really like it

              They should move away from Ubuntu with all that Mir/Qt stuff.

                I've been amazed for a little while now, using Elementary, that an Ubuntu based distro could be so darn snappy and feel so lightweight.

                They really did do a good job under the hood.

                  One of the developers said on the HN thread that transitioning to XMir in the near future was on the agenda, though they haven't ruled out Wayland either.
                  He also said that since they have such a heavy reliance on Launchpad and other Canonical services that moving to another distro e.g. Debian is out of the question in the near term.

                    They should not rely on 2 layers of development to get upstream. There is Ubuntu, that gets packages from Debian (mainly), that gets packages from upstream.
                    Ubuntu already showed everybody that it doesn't give a shit to versions based on it. Kubuntu, Lubuntu, etc. are not very happy with them.

                    Fedora Project is a much more reliable way to get upstream packages, very bleeding edge. If they need something more stable they should move (fast) to Debian. The final result is that their packages should be based on upstream projects like GNOME, not a always-changing distro like Ubuntu. Mint already made a movement that way with LMDE.

                    The products from canonical are as volatile as their decisions. =s
                    Not solid like Debian or other projects.
