"Nowadays, Ubuntu-based Linux distributions pop up everywhere
like mushrooms after the rain. Hardly a week goes by without news
of yet another Ubuntu derivative. But many of them don't go beyond
changing the default appearance and software bundle.
"At first sight, Elementary OS looks like one of these
innumerable Ubuntu clones, albeit a rather pretty one. But unlike
other Ubuntu derivatives, the new distro offers more than just a
slick new theme. Take a closer look at the Docky launcher, and
you'll notice three new applications: the Postler email client, the
Dexter address book, and the Purple dictionary tool."
