I am new to Elementary OS but not to UNIX and UNIX like operating systems. I'm looking for a desktop OS replacement (please don't bother offering suggestions I can find them myself). For me this means: I don't have to open a command line every time I want to do routine system tasks (install, backup, restore, manage wifi, manage installed software, all the quick and easy things you find in Windows or OS X). It runs on consumer hardware that I can pick up easily. There is a good selection of "normal" productivity software that is easy to use. For me we are good here, I prefer LibreOffice, Firefox. I haven't found email or PIM tools that I like. It updates itself, and preferably the installed software. Syncs Dropbox properly. I've been messing around with Elementary OS (installed on a USB 3 flash drive) and I like the look of it. My home servers are all FreeBSD but I find there is too much effort getting it to be a desktop. Although, I did run FreeBSD as my main desktop for about 6 years. I've got a couple of VPSes that run Debian and I used to run a large cluster of Fedora (about 150 servers). Point being, I'm reasonably familiar with the command line stuff, I just don't want to need to use it on my desktop normally. I would like very much to be able to drop Windows 10 completely but I'm not sure that I will still be able to run the games I've got (mostly through Steam). I'm okay with using Wine or some other Win32 library to get that work but I haven't even tried Wine since the late 1990s. That is me as it relates to elementary OS.
