Elementary OS Loki now has a stable release available for download. This Linux distribution in based upon Ubuntu, and is available only in 64-bit versions (a definite trend these days, sad to say for those of us with older 32-bit boxes still laying around).
I have used Elementary OS before, and liked it quite a bit. It's pretty lean and sparse, but if you are simply using your PC for everyday tasks and like an uncluttered, somewhat Mac-like interface, this may be the Linux distro for you.
As with most Linux distributions, Elementary is available as a free download although it's perhaps not immediately obvious on their home page. Please donate if you feel the project has value to you. You can download for free by selecting a "custom" donation amount and entering zero.
