elementary OS 6 Beta releases: beautiful Linux distro
Elementary OS is a well-polished desktop Linux distribution based on Ubuntu, known as the most beautiful Linux distribution. In fact, Elementary was originally a theme beautification project in Ubuntu and later evolved into a standalone distribution due to its popularity. On its official website, elementary OS introduces itself to a fast, open-source alternative to Windows / macOS. It is a derivative of Ubuntu so it’s fully compatible with all Ubuntu packages. Although based on Ubuntu, it abandoned many of the default Ubuntu applications and used many lightweight alternatives. For example, the mail program uses Geary Mail instead of ThunderBird, the terminal uses the Pantheon Terminal, the text editor uses Scratch, the music player uses noise, the file manager is Pantheon Files, and so on.
This beautiful Linux distribution references a lot of macOS design elements, to provide users with a more concise experience. elementary OS from the appearance of the interface to the system of various design elements is a very beautiful, strong force! If you want to experience the beautiful interface with Linux design, you may wish to consider it.
