    I used Elementary once about a year ago.

    A total buggy mess, I won't ever be using it again.

    Which version? Luna is based off Ubuntu 12.04, and has been out for a while, so that should be stable (tho haven't tried it)

    If you tried the Freya beta, then yes you should've expected bugs lol, especially that early on. Even now Freya has bugs (nothing gamebreaking but alt-tabbing doesn't work properly, and a recent update broke the search function in "files".

    It was Luna. The installer froze when trying to install it alongside Windows (this is usually a deal breaker for me), if any installer freezes or barfs during a custom partitioning and install, I write it off as a buggy mess.

    @ /ADM
    This thread is about elementary OS Freya, please respect this, bugs are to be expected, Freya is in heavy development.
    If you have issues with Luna, please start a new thread and be specific about your bug if you want help.
    If not, I really can't see the relevancy of your comments.

    Re: [elementary OS] A quick glimpse of elementary OS Freya

    Great news to those with a UEFI pc.
    Bug #1355698 "Unable to boot via UEFI into installed freya system" has been closed.
    So now you are able to install and boot Freya from a system with UEFI and secure boot.
    But (why does there always have to be a but ) the elementary iso has a problem still to be resolved, it does not automatically generate a 2,4MB FAT boot partition if you use the dd command or the image writer from gnome-disks ( like Ubuntu or Mint does ).
    I can recommend Unetbootin for the task, Unetbootin requires a FAT32 formatted USB-stick to work thereby ensuring that the stick will boot on a UEFI pc.

    OK, all set, here we go:
    1. Download this iso http://downloads.elementaryos.org/is...4.20141209.iso
    2. Erase any partition on your USB-stick and create a FAT32 partition using all space on the stick
    3. Get Unetbootin from here http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/ or from the Ubuntu software center
    4. Launch Unetbootin and check "Diskimage", browse to your diskimage and be sure that you have selected the correct USB-drive hit ok and let the fun begin.


    If you have a Windows system you could try Rufus as an alternative too, but remember to use FAT32 as filesystem on the USB-stick

    Ps.
    Remember to do backup or be sure that you can recreate the pc using a restore media !!!
    This comes as is and without any kind of support.
