Well worth a try if you have not used it before. It is a properly pretty OS and seems really good from my limited time playing with it. First Ubuntu 16.04 based distro I have booted that detects and uses both of my screens correctly right off the bat. Everything else seemed to work fine too.


Anyone else using it?

I’ve tried it, but the whole project is just screaming not invented here! Most of the Elementary core apps are just rebranded apps taken from GNOME. The whole community would have benefited more of Elementary’s contributors had contributed to GNOME instead.

Tried it a couple of times. It certain looks nice but has always been buggy when I've used it.


Might give this a try just to see whats improved.
