The new OS features an entirely custom desktop shell called Pantheon which has been developed from scratch using Vala and Gtk+ which allows for fast apps with a small memory footprint. Elementary OS has been years in the making, and the team have documented the process in their latest blog post."

Ubuntu 12.04 vs. 13.04 (1)

xkosh (1011003) | about 8 months ago | (#44543905)

Maybe someone can explain to me the wisdom of releasing a distro based on 12.04 over 13.04. Does that not seem overcautious?

Wasn't 12.04 a LTS release? I believe this was the reasoning, eg. stability, reliability. And like it was said, this was years in the making, we would be waiting another 6-12 months to base it off 13.04 and by then 14.04 would be out.
