ElementaryOS is the closest thing to Mac OS-X in terms of consistency and minimalism of it’s desktop environment interface. Unlike other Linux distro’s it’s released when the developers think it’s ready, rather than a 6 month rolling cycle. It’ll take a lot to turn my head away from Linux Mint but Elementary has got a lot of things going for it to be quite honest and I’ll leave you to discover them yourself. I’m only interested in problems, and the first one I ran into was installing Dropbox. Installing it from the Software Centre doesn’t work.
They way to sort it, is to install git using sudo apt-get install git
Once git is installed, then run the following commands
git clone https://github.com/zant95/elementary-dropbox /tmp/elementary-dropbox
Dropbox will then open, asking for your account username and password, and the Dropbox sync icon will appear in WingPanel.
