Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, a lot of interesting projects are about to be demoed at the Google Summer of Code. While the GNOME team is presenting GNOME Books, part of GNOME 3.14, Sergey “Shnatsel” Davidoff, one of the Elementary OS developers plans to integrate the Pantheon Shell, GUI framework, applications and the GTK theme to Debian. The only thing that will not get ported is the Wingpanel, due to the fact that is dependent on the Ubuntu indicators.
The Pantheon Shell is already available for Gentoo, while the porting for Arch Linux is already under advanced work.
While Elementary OS is based on Ubuntu, which is Debian compatible, the porting progress should not be quite rocket science, but it would be great to have the most beautiful desktop environment on the good old Debian.
