    Since Linux and Mac are sort of related, it seems more appropriate than trying to mimic a Windows OS. But I agree, Linux is not Mac or Windows.

    What a load of bollocks, Linux is flexible and allows it to be very customized, so why should that matter? What exactly does something like Cinnamon do, it copies the Windows menu. :g:

    Ehm, no.

    A lot of actual win features are just copied from KDE and other Linux DEs.

    It's true that both the first versions of Gnome and KDE were inspired by the w95 UI (and in small part by Macos "classic" UI) but that was at the end of last millenium.

    In the latest years the contamination went in the opposite direction.

    Added ppa for Libre office so it will always use the Fresh version.
    Added manual update procedure of the 4.2.0 kernel that will be released for Wily Werewolf on October 22, works great !

    downloaded from the weblink - it says 909mb on the webpage - when I downloaded its size was 867mb ...:confused:

    scrub that, browser was reporting wrong size :/

    For a second there I thought it was because I got it for $0.00 and they jipped me ;)

    15.04 notification

    Note: some people may get a notification to upgrade to 15.04, don't do it. eOS is based on 14.04 LTS.
