    Elementary OS "Luna" Released

    If OS X and Ubuntu had a baby, this is probably what it would look like.

    Luna has been engineered from the ground up to be light on its toes. It starts up quickly, logs in instantly, and uses the bare minimum of resources so that your apps enjoy a speed boost as well. And with Luna, you get the same Linux foundation chosen for the world’s fastest supercomputers.

    Blunt 2c: I really couldn't care less what looks too much like Apple and what looks too much like Windows. I need an operating system that gets in my way when I need it to, out of my way when I need it to, to be simple to use yet advanced when I need to complete a task that matters. In all of the distros I've used, Elementary OS has delivered all of those parameters to the fullest. I still use other distros, and have a ton of interest still vested in Gnome 3, Cinnamon, Ubuntu, Mint, Debian, Fedora, etc., but eOS has been a nice experience for me, whether at home or at work.

    I do have to say, I used to be a firm believer in using a distro that is best tailored to the user's needs and abilities, and I still find that to be somewhat true, but I have found this "crazy simple to use" yet "does all of the advanced tasks I need it to" cocktail to be one I really enjoy. I love being able to use the same distro for my job that I would recommend to, literally, any family member of any experience level.
