Elementary OS Freya is Now Available for Download

Posted on the 16 April 2015 by Nrjperera @nrjperera

elementary OS is one of the most beautiful and smooth Linux distributions I’ve ever used. The latest version of the operating system, “Freya”, doesn’t fall short of its’ promise.

elementary OS is a Linux distrubution based on Ubuntu. The latest version, Freya, which was crafted based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, took longer than expected for developers bring into the stable state. It’s been a long wait for the fans of the Mac-inspired OS.
