Ubuntu is a Linux distribution that starts with the breadth of Debian and adds regular releases (every six months), a clear focus on the user and usability (it should "Just Work", TM) and a commitment to security updates with 18 months of support for every release. Ubuntu ships with the latest Gnome release as well as a selection of server and desktop software that makes for a comfortable desktop experience off a single installation CD.

    Reviewing 14.10 (Utopic Unicorn) (Oct 26, 2014)

    Until top panel remains riveted, Linux (Ubuntu flavor) will remain ridged, un-Linux.
    Unity panel is acceptable.

    As usual, LinuxMint will surely enjoy this "make" to offer us a better build.

    Gonna be a great base for a real distro:


    Five stars for the engine under the hood, -5 stars for UI.

    I'll give it a 3.

    Works great on a netbook with a SSD. The GUI you have to get used to but after that, it does everything light years faster then Win 8.

    Reviewing 13.10 (Saucy Salamander) Final Beta (Sep 30, 2013)

    Elementary OS my friends, it does everything right that ubuntu does wrong. It boots fast, (yes a lot of people care about a computer booting in less than 5 minutes), the desktop looks unified along with the applications, (yes this matters too), and it looks like a real desktop and not a touch screen hybrid frankenmess.

    Just go get EOS Luna, and you'll never have to worry about ubuntu screwing up your OS ever again.

    I recently updated my ubuntu 12.04 to 12.10. It's not good in terms of interface because the alert or optional message is not getting displayed and the text is having the white background in select options which is not good at all......thinking back to downgrade the ubuntu 12.04. which is very good and stable.

    Quetzalcoatl (or, as he was known to the Mayan people as Kukulcan or Ququmatz), is the perfect name for this distro so long as it get's released before Dec. 21, 2012. lol

    Soldier1st: you miss the point of my text completely, I have been trying Linux for the past 20 years and I am having the same old problems now as I had 20 years ago i.e. no printer drivers no scanner driver, can’t use 2 monitors nothing remotely as good as photoshop (and don’t mention Gimp it’s a joke” the man in the street just wants a OS and software to do their bidding without tinkering about on the command line. This is the year 2010 not 1985
