    Nice.

    I've tested the betas a few times and I liked what they were doing so I shall surely be grabbing the final ISO's in an hour.

    Best implementation of Mac OSX on Linux.

    Downside is the Pantheon Files Manager is still crippled and the desktop is frozen solid. Plan on dumping it for Nautilus Files Manager since that's the only way to get a true right click working desktop on elementaryos.

    You have a quite valid point there. At least it saves us from cluttering up the desktop

    I'm used to Caja from MATE ( improved old nautilus 2.something ), maybe Caja can be used instead too.

    How do you use nautilus with elementary ?

    Looks pretty nice. In fact, the promo video has the desktop set up pretty much exactly how I like to have it.

    The one other gut reaction I have, and this applies not only to Elementary but the world of the Linux desktop in general, is that it looks like it uses a lot of native applications. For example, it's has its own file manager, music player, web browser, email client, etc. Do we really need so many different families of apps in the Linux world that do the same thing? Not that I really have a problem with it or anything; I understand that all these projects have their own goals in mind and there's nothing wrong with having so many of them, and in fact in my experience all these different apps tend to be very good. It just seems like, in a perfect world, we'd have maybe one or two programs to do each function and the rest of the developers would join one of these projects and improve them.

    Hey! I was in love with their Beta Luna....
    Very nice, very fast, very small n uber cool!!!!

    Sad, After Installing Debian Wheezy, I am outta space to try out the final release...

    Very polished desktop it gives... Based in Ubuntu12.04, now that was the downside , got many older versions of my applications...

    But it was a lovely experience working on the Luna Beta all in all....

    Uninstall Pantheon Files, install Nautilus. You may need to use Dconf to set up Nautilus to handle the desktop, put icons on it and make it fully right click. Log out and log in again to set the change. When you launch Nautilus, the icons should appear - like Computer, Home and Trash and you should have a right click desktop. If you want to use Caja in place of Pantheon Files, I guess it will restore similar functionality to the desktop. Most people are used to putting and removing things from their desktop!

    I found this on Elementary Update

    Enable Desktop Icons in elementary Luna

    So it should be a doable task, will try later

    Good site for following elementary, lots of good howto's, news and many other things.

    A plugin could be written for the Switchboard to make the desktop fully right click but since that is not in the cards, replacing Pantheon Files with Nautilus will work. I can understand having a clean desktop but people sometimes do want to have work where they can go to it immediately! You can of course go and work in a folder but that can be a drag at times.

    Good luck!
