What is Elementary OS?
To answer your question Elementary OS is a Linux distribution based or should I say a derivative of Ubuntu. I have been using and playing with Elementary OS for a few weeks now. So far, I can say that its an excellent operating system. Elementary OS is and excellent OS for people who do not want to break their heads with the technical aspects of an Operating System. Elementary OS is excellent for children starting to use a computer. However, while limited to some extend it’s also good and powerful enough for developers and technical gurus.
The main aim of Elementary OS it to mainly focus on non-technical users. Elementary OS showcases the Pantheon desktop environment. Elementary OS is “fast, open, and privacy-respecting” replacement to macOS. It’s also good for orphaned Windows 7 users looking for something different. One of the good points is the App Center (software center) designed with a pay-what-you-want model. The App Center is populated with thousands of free programs, and some pay programs. The operating system, the desktop environment, and accompanying applications are developed and maintained by elementary, Inc.
I personally like to install Elementary OS into newly refurbished systems. I recommend it as a macOS or windows replacement and for for those individuals are looking for something different and new. If you want to know more about Elemtary OS – I recommend you read Elementary OS Review by Mike Johnston (CMS Critics).
You can directly download elementary OS from their website. You can download Elementary OS for free, however, a small donation will help to support future development works. If you would like to have a PC with Elementary OS installed – contact me, I’ll be more than happy to help you.
