re: What’s your Computer Environment? VIEW POST


Hardware: Dell Latitude with 16GB memory and 500GB SSD.

OS: ElementaryOS

Don't care about the computer as much as the OS.

ElementaryOS is like Linux Mint in that its minimalistic in terms of resource usage and shiny distractions. But its aesthetics are clean and consistent much like OSX.

The only gotchas are. The standard suite of *nix packaging tools (ex software-properties-common) aren't installed by default. A the desktop is disabled by default so no icons on the desktop (I actually like this) unless you explicitly enable them in the Gnome settings via Dconf.


I would use Linux but I need to use too many main stream applications to make the switch.
