EoS is a new Linux distribution, reputed to be the most beautiful Linux so far.
Indeed, it is. Breathtaking, even, while taking minimalism to a whole new level.

A strange experience, at first, in which things don't work in the way they ever have before: clicking right, or left, on the desktop does nothing. No menus appear.
This is most peculiar.
A MacOSX dock appears at the bottom, with beautiful icons. The icons are one of the outstanding features, in fact. Like the included HiRes backgrounds.

It has glitches, like all Linux systems.
My icons disappeared, and scrambled themselves, several times, for no apparent reason. While irritating, the system still works fine. And they all magically reappear, as if by magic, after turning the machine on the next day.

You can take a look here.
Although it seems you have to pay to download it, you actually don't. Just type in a zero into the donation field, and you're good to go.
Like any Linux system, though, beware: there is the potential to wipe out your entire existing system.

I like it a lot, although it has its limitations. Best used as a refreshing change of scene from Windows, installed side by side with it.
Meanwhile, when it works - and it usually does - it's drop-dead gorgeous, peaceful, and simple.
