For the past 6 months or so I've been running Linux Mint 15 as my Desktop OS. It can be a little slow in it's operation, slight lag in response to mouseclicks etc. so I've been on the lookout for a new desktop distro when someone point out Elementary OS.

It's fairly new and based on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. It's highly customized to look like OS X, while I'm not a huge fan of the OS X interface it does have some nice features.

I installed it on a VM for a quick play and the first thing I noticed was how fast it was. Everything seemed to open instantly.
