No its a ubuntu distro

What is the size
how is this a replacement if it doesn't run any windows and mac apps?
Someone should just copy and rebrand Windows 7.
Nice os.I probe,doesnt have Live Mode.https://distrowatch.com/TOP 4 elementryOS,
THE QUESTION IS IF YOU CAN GAME ON IT
I actually didn't know that you could just enter $0 and download it for free. Before, I only saw the paid options and thought that this OS was paid because of how "superior" it is. Now I gotta check put Elementary OS!!
It's a linux distro based on ubuntu, pretending not to be a linux distro. Like Apple when they released OSX and tried to pretend they hadn't just used open source software for most of it. I have tried it as a distro for my mother, but it was just way too buggy for prime time. As for different, well, it's ubuntu under the hood. Nothing really different to other distros out there. Even the artwork is similar to some others.
Elementary OS, for me, I have always supported these guys through their ups and downs.
It looks like it wants to be both Windows and Mac OS. It fails at both.
After 3-years of trying elementaryOS, have come to the conclusion that it is NOT for Power Users. This is the OS you put on your Mother's/Grandmother's computer (Who can't afford a Mac).While it has the looks of the Hot, College Débutante, it is about as exciting and versatile as the High School Janitor. SUPER DIFFICULT to customize, hyper-resistant to adding PPAs and even things like enabling saving of files to the Desktop is ultra-difficult. They've focused so much on the form, that the function has suffered GREATLY. Those looking at this as a svelt, elegant Linux Distro would be much better served by Solus or the AMAZINGLY Light LXLE.
All the linux distros fonts and general rendering looks too horrible to use
Best OS on this planet.
Epiphany browser changed its name to Web, that's all, and evidently EOS hasn't picked up on it yet. The big issue is whether it supports extensions, specifically from Chrome. I don't think it does.I give the OS high points for design, but it seems too dumbed down in functionality and crippled in terms of software. In my live usb test it went into some highly unstable video action that led to an unbidden shutdown routine.I wish them well, but I will pass.
Always asking for money free always better
Chromium: Right click on title bar, uncheck use system title bar.Result: A sleek browser that fits the theming perfectly.
7:52 Elementary might have it but its implementation thereof sucks from a productivity perspective. Bring back Luna.
"we are built on linux" so it isn't an os, but a distro.
