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

    Been using Freya for several months, and love it because of Pantheon. However, despite understanding why eOS develops its own apps (read: forks), I still don't agree with the decision, as I'm sure it drains developers' time/resources that could be spent on the DE.

    I've tried all the apps (except Music, b/c VLC), and they just feel too simple compared to more popular alternatives. OS X is famous for its apps because they're good at what they do....but eOS's apps are too simple...I know they want eOS to feel like a "unified" OS theme wise, but nobody's going to use Midori because it fits the eOS aesthetic lol.

    That said, Pantheon is great because it has elements from Unity/GNOME without the downsides (full screen for all app view wtf)

    ps: That said, eOS doesn't reinvent the wheel in any shape/form, as GNOME can be easily modded to look similer to Pantheon, but I still like it

    Ok !
    Daniel Foré and crew decided to release Freya yesterday ??
    http://blog.elementary.io/post/11613.../freya-is-here
    A bit early in my opinion, but never the less..

    Freya is there and is in good shape

    You can get it here:
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/elem.../files/stable/

    Or from the official web page http://elementary.io/

    Enjoy

    Tried it and while it looks nice, I feel it should've been a release candidate. A little too soon imho.

    Exactly my opinion too, to give an example, the online accounts have now been removed from switchboard, why ? didn't they work ?

    Audience, the video-player and Noise the music-player still need a lot of attention.

    Personally I expected more from Freya.
