Elementary OS is an operating system (OS) based on the Ubuntu distribution. As a standard desktop environment, this operating system uses the elegant Pantheon interface, which in many respects resembles a MacOS shell.
One of the key features of elementary OS is the open source application store (AppCenter). Among them there are both free and paid programs. Fortunately, for the second category of utilities there is a rule: "pay as much as you can". This means that users indicate the amount of the donation themselves, and thus support the utility developers. In any case, you can always specify 0 in the column "Price" and download the application for free. In fact, the store encourages third party customers to contribute to the development of the free software ecosystem.
OS also includes firmware that is used to solve simple tasks: sending mail, creating a screenshot, calculating numbers, managing logical disks, displaying a calendar on the desktop, playing video/audio tracks and others. Among the built-in utilities we should mention the universal Code editor that supports various programming languages and extensions and also allows you to work directly with Git. In addition, a firewall, a utility for comprehensive cleaning of the system from garbage files and a location shutdown/enabling service are available "out of the box". The latter includes the ability to deactivate various applications that request geodata from the user.
Elementary OS is considered one of the most beautiful OSs. It is suitable for designers, artists, web developers and all those who are looking for a free Linux-based work platform with a nice interface and a wide range of features.
