Manjaro Cutefish Edition is a community spin with a macOS-like design for this Linux distro

Welcome one, welcome all to the battle of macOS-inspired Linux distributions! Who will be the victor in winning over disgruntled Apple users?

In this corner, hailing from Wuhan, China and weighing in at 2.8 GB, we have Deepin! Here’s hoping Deepin becomes the other thing Wuhan is famous for.

In this corner, hailing from the US and weighing in at 1.49 GB, we have elementaryOS! Want to give it a whirl, but can’t find the download button? That’s because it’s pay-what-you-want. Elementary!

And finally, in this corner, coming from, uh… nowhere in particular and weighing in at 1.74 GB zipped, we have Manjaro Cutefish Edition! Based on the very unfortunately named JingOS, it comes with all the bells and whistles and hopefully none of the national extremism.

Place your bets, place your bets!

This comment deserves all the upvotes in the world. As for me I’m betting on Elementary!

I’m betting on elementaryOS too, they’re doing great work without directly copying everything about macOS.

I think that’s a good thing because it means it’s probably targeting normal people since the country is moving towards less reliance on things like windows.

Ooh, a local rivalry! Of sorts.

Neat, I guess. I always wondered how many people use systems like this in transitioning to Linux or if that many users just really like Windows and OS X clones.

I’ve been using linux for long enough that I’m entrenched in the traditional desktops and window managers.

This seems like a slight redesign of the new Deepin, right?

Looks rather Plasma Mobile based to me, but not sure.

It was previously called CyberOS btw.

Cyberos was arch based , its suddenly removed website without any announcement

I went to CyberOS website a couple of weeks ago and it pointed to this, so I thought it had changed its name, but it seems they are basedon Manjaro now.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
