elementary OS Luna Review
Brought to you by: System76
In April of 2011, a small group of high school and college kids released an Ubuntu 10.10 remaster that we called elementary OS “Jupiter”.
It was clear from the get-go that Luna would be all about getting things done, and a major component of that is apps that open and close instantly. But aside from optimizing the code, there was a push to optimize speed on the design side as well.
After elementary OS Luna has been officially released, a surge of new eOS users has arrived, and we are here to help. Everyone, including me, loves a “Top Things To Do After Installing…” list, so let’s get you started.
Settings and configuration for the different components of our computers is typically scattered amongst many disjointed, disparate, stand-alone applications with different user interfaces and behavior.
Switchboard solves this problem by enforcing coherency with regard to interface and behavior, and by automatically organizing the different configuration options into one unified and central location.
Switchboard is meant to provide a place for global configuration settings, such as power options, device syncing, or third-party hardware.
