Question Elementary OS

Hello guys..

I just came across a video on YT, that was doing a review on a OS called Elementary. I have not downloaded and tested this in a VM yet.

I was just wondering if any of you guys ever heard of it or have tested it out.

What are your thoughts on this new OS.

https://elementary.io/

Also just a note: if you put into the box zero dollars , you can download the free version.

Also I was wondering if this OS, plays nice with windows software.

No Linux OS plays nice with Windows software. This one is Ubuntu-based. The only cool feature is the Pantheon desktop, but you can get that in many distributions anyways.

Imagine Ubuntu with a MacOS-like desktop environment.

Hey man, thanks for the input bro..

Also sorry for the late reply.

EDIT: I think tomorrow I will try out the OS in a VM, and see what's it's like.

It's really good looking. Sadly that DE is not very customizable. It's made to look like MacOS and you are not really supposed to mess with it.

You'll like it or not depending on what you are looking for. Maybe if I know what that is I can save you the time. I have tried every popular distro and the unpopular ones too. Heck I even tried Gentoo and Slackware, so I kind of have a general idea of what is what
