From a report on BetaNews: If you own a Raspberry Pi, you’re probably familiar with PIXEL. The desktop environment is included in the Raspbian OS. The Raspberry Pi Foundation describes PIXEL as the “GNU/Linux we would want to use” and understandably so. It offers a smart, clean interface, a decent selection of software, the Chromium web browser with plug-ins, and more — and from today it’s available for PC and Mac. The version of Debian+PIXEL for x86 platforms is described as “experimental” but having taken it for a spin, it seems pretty stable to me. To run PIXEL on your PC or Mac, download the image, burn it onto a DVD or flash it onto a USB memory stick, and boot from it. The desktop environment will load ready for use.
