    Whitch distro


    Hello

    First thing i must write is my english skills - im begginer or little bit intermediate so, im so sorry if this question was answered. So

    I'm using Elementary os becouse looks like Mac os ( i know pear os looks like copy of mac os but i dont like mac os )
    I want to have OS, whitch will have to same bar on the bottom like Mac os ( same style ) and same functionality like ubuntu.
    In Elementary OS i downloaded some packs for window animation but it didn't work.

    thank you for your answer and sorry for my english

    I assume that was Compiz but can you post more detail on what "it didn't work" means? I thought that Elementary OS used Gala as it Window Manager and that Gala could animate pretty much everything. I don't use Elementary OS but I would imagine there will be options for that somewhere in a control panel.


    There is nothing wrong with your English by the way.

    Yes it was the Compiz but if i choos some effects like animatoin, window decoration, waving etc. , but if i restarted pc and booted to elementary OS everything remainded unchanged .
    i heard the Compiz must be set as defauld manager or something like that.
    I'm new in linux world but in past i try ubuntu but Elementary OS look better for me

    That sound like you are using a LiveCD. Did you actually install Elementary OS to your hard drive? How did you do it?

    Did you try running
    Code:
    compiz --replace

    Truth be told no real distro is exactly like OSX, pear came close but its dead now.
    There is pinguy but I have not seen an upgrade for it in ages.

    The only viable one I know of is zorin
