elementaryOS ‘Luna’ has been released. Back in May, here at Unixmen we looked at elementaryOS Beta 1 and Beta 2. Now that the Beta 2 has gone gold, we’ll take another look at it soon with a more in-depth review. But while you’re sitting around waiting for us to get to it, you can download […]

When I planned this review, I never really understood how difficult things would become to reach a point where I could actually run the Razor-QT desktop for some real-world testing. In a nutshell, oh my it was worth every minute of pain. Want to know more? Read on. I tested on elementaryOS/Ubuntu with Razor-QT 0.5.2. […]
