I almost feel tempted to start with a quote from the Wheel of Time series, something like there are no beginnings and ends, but it was a beginning. Indeed, the guys behind the elementary OS have created their own version of what the next, future desktop for Linux ought to be.

There is not much detail about Pantheon going about the Internet, and it does not seem to have drawn much attention since being launched. Which does not bode well for this young project. Still, I decided to see whether this lightweight and modular environment written in Vala and GTK+ can bring fresh merit to the Linux world.

Let us see indeed.
