  • Thank for share !

  • is it compatible with ubuntu 14.4 lts i installed the program but the only thing changes the docky started. and no other changes were made. what is the solution please?

  • the best way is to use the hardware WE like, in my case a X220 Lenovo, great, fast, full of features, have endurance (not a lady´s hardware), with linux, and the great look of MAC OS.

  • I like it because it looks like a Mac, but is 100% Linux. It could problay fool Mac users. I realy like it. The only problum I have is that Unity is default. I recomend that the devlopers try to use cinnamon or Mate as they would look better. I would love to try more in the future and I am looking forward for the next release.

  • It is just perfect!
