Elementary

home distros software | ubuntu Pear

Ubuntu-based (LTS), tries to look like Mac; 'Pantheon" desktop (KDE available), not descended from Gnome, lightweight, uses droid fonts. Mac-type dock for apps. Window manager is Gala, said by reviewer to use much system resource. Uses own file mgr and terminal, Midori. Codecs/proprietaries available. Customizing by 'Elementary Tweaks' - must download. Free but asks for contribution. Web site wants JavaScript - but has regular nenus on left.

No forum, uses Chat (JavaScript required)
