    Quoted from distrowatch.com:

    The developers of elementary OS have announced the launch of a new stable release, code name "Freya". The new release features UEFI support, improved interactive notifications, a new firewall utility, designed administrative utilities and a unified login/lock screen. "elementary is proud to announce the stable release of elementary OS Freya. After a year and a half of development, over a thousand bug fixes, and countless lines of code, we can finally say it's here. Freya is the latest version of elementary OS, a design-oriented and open source Linux-based operating system for desktops and laptops. It succeeds Luna which was released in August of 2013." The new release offers Google Calendar support, improved network share support through Samba and more flexible search tools. More information on the new release can be found in the distribution's release announcement.

    It looks nice, but I'm not too keen on Midori.

    Is it my imagination, or do you have to pay for it now. I didn't see any way to download a free version or ISO....

    There's that. Midori reminded me of Epiphany. I think Epiphany was the basis for Safari and Maxthon.

    Chromium x64 is good on Linux. Elementary really does look like it's good 'out of the box'.

    If I remember right, I didn't care much for the default email client either... but that was easily changed. It IS nice though....

    I'm guessing it isn't T-Bird then.
