    Since you have used a lot of command line code in your tutorial, I thought it would be a good idea to pass along this helpful hint. Rather than manually typing the examples, which can be tedious and prone to typos, open a terminal window and the above tutorial in your browser. Highlight the commands in the code blocks then click the middle mouse button (scroll wheel) in the terminal window to copy and paste.

    If you try to download Elementary OS from their web site, it will force you to make a $10 minimum donation. If they behave like this now they are very likely to put spyware in their OS later to get advertising money. I would avoid.

    Hmm... :g:I don't know. Elementary OS is a fine distribution, and it is open source, so the likelihood of it having spyware is still lower than any closed source OS, such as OS X or Windows. It isn't against open source to ask people to pay for products - think about the work they put in compiling their source together, and the amount of work the Elementary OS team put in to designing their distribution this beautifully.

    If you really don't want to pay any money, there is an option on their website to choose not to. While their website encourages you to pay $10, you can enter in any custom amount you like, including $0. Hope this helps! :)

    They change their website recently, 2 week ago I tried to download it and when click download it had a popup requiring $10 minimum donation before can proceed. Now can enter custom amount, they fixed it. But too late it already pushed me to Mint..
    Do you know how this Elementary compare to Mint? I hear Mint more stable.

    Both are Ubuntu 14.04 based, Mint is at 17.2 and Elementary is at 0.3 beta ! Elementary should not be used on production systems since it's beta. But I have been using it for that purpose on multiple machines with no issues. So your choice !

    The beta status puts me off, and the Elementary is not updated much, the last update was April I recall seeing!

    I think it's 2019 , however they will start building Elementary OS 0.4 when Ubuntu 16.04 releases next year so the eol is kinda irrelevant, don't see many people staying on 0.3.1 when by 2019 we should be seeing Elementary 0.5 at least.

    ElementaryOS needs a fast computer, I try it on a old computer, it is laggy and slow.

    I realize now what made my computer slow with ElementaryOS, it is the lack of a compatible proprietary driver for my old graphics card. No hardware acceleration for graphics. Upon searching there is no fix for my Intel graphics card on ElementaryOS, one of the downsides of a small OS.

    So switching to the proprietary drivers in Software & Updates doesn't work ?

    Why would I see this as more of a Mac replacement than a Windows replacement?

    Maybe because that is what it looks like? Maybe I'm just retarded, but Zorin seems to be a closer Windows replacement than this crap.
