1 of 5 This is the fastest PC operating system I have used. It boots up and shuts down so quickly. Switching between apps is super fast too. Anyone else tried anything new lately?

John, just trying to make a decision what OS to put on the ultrabook I got when prices dropped after xmas. How's the oDesk app on ElementaryOS, does the Ubuntu version work, have you tried it? As ElementaryOS is based on Ubuntu - and I use the Ubuntu 12.04/64b version on 13.10 anyway...

Hi Jana,


I have never tried oDesk team app on linux or elementary OS.


I would steer clear of elementary, last time I updated it, it did not boot afterwards.


Try Ubuntu, it will probably work, I find its pretty stable.

Elementary OS is just another Linux distro based on Ubuntu. Are you all talking about Freya or an earlier version? We use Red Hat at work and don't do much these days except let it run as-is. Too many 'bells and whistles.'
