elementary is a software platform; a unified computer operating system. We have a commitment to a particular toolkit (GTK+) and support a preferred programming language (Vala). We decide how our apps will behave. Sometimes we take control and shape the out-of-the-box experience as much as we possibly can by creating our own apps. We've created an application development framework (Granite) and other developer tools that are designed to help developers build apps specifically for our platform.

Elementary OS is a (simple) remaster of Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin). Shouldn't that be mentioned on the Summary page?
Great distro. Really fast and easy to use. Only thing wrong it really needs a minimize button by default (I know elementary tweaks can get it back but it dosen't come with it)
That is far one of the best Linux distribution that I have used. I am a Linux expert (more than 5 years of use) and I really do enjoy this distribution. Based on Ubuntu, it has the easy of use side of it (I still love Debian/FreeBSD and to tweek my stuff, but I do not have time anymore for that). The GUI is perfect! I do not like Gnome3/KDE4/Unity and was using Mate while waiting to find-out something better and I just found it! The only bad was the attempt to use the Full Disk encryption, not included in the stable version of the installer (tryed the beta who include it), but the gui was not lauching yet, so I worked this around by installing Ubuntu from an alternative CD and after installing Elementary from the PPA. Appart that, success! I love it for it's interface and the fonts that played well right out of the box. Great work guys!
lo consiglio a tutti molto meglio di ubuntu più veloce leggero e molto bello come grafica
