    An HTML 5 desktop...rather interesting.

    Those using Arch or Arch-based/compatible distros can check out the Deepin Desktop Environment here:

        Not to mention that the desktop environment is programmed in Go.

          Installed it last night and after uninstalling the crashing buggy google chrome it has been a realy solid OS. It's pretty snappy. After installing a dock it is a joy to use.
          Now if only I can get it to use the Ubuntu 14.10 repos.

            They removed the BitTorrent download option and added fucking MEGA instead that can't even load the ISO without a browser extension.
            Let's see how many tries I need to successfully download 2014.2.

              There is a sourceforge and an official mirror.

              There is also a torrent floating around.

                Downloaded it last night on my Windows installation, used the the tool on the .ISO to create a bootdisk, booted, installed, and ran. Easiest installation of an OS that I've ever tried. On top of that, the layout is pretty fast to learn.
                I've had some issues making Linux installs work on this PC, which turned out to be a CPUID (iirc) setting in the UEFI BIOS -_-
