The elementary team typically only supports the latest release with feature updates, which I think is mainly a volunteer issue than anything else. The team tends to not set firm release dates and follows a "done when it's done" mentality. So now that Loki is released, there isn't a set date for Freya's end-of-life, but Freya-specific issues will likely not ...

I guess it will have updates until next elementary OS release (0.5) but the backend (Ubuntu) will keep updating until EOL, which is IIRC in 2021

it is not discontinued, the latest version is 5.0 Juno, based on ubuntu 18.04 LTS. I must remind you that eOS is based only on the LTS versions of ubuntu. So when another LTS version of ubuntu comes out we will see some new version of eOS.

As far as I know there is still an "Amazon App" pre-installed by default on current Ubuntu versions. However it is really just a link to the website and can be easily uninstalled. What you're referring to in your first quote is the Shopping Lens. It could also be easily uninstalled and in later versions of Ubuntu there was a setting to disable it, IIRC. ...

Solved by burning the ISO disc on Windows 10. Running Mojave OSX and it appears the feature to burn a bootable ISO image was removed by Apple for some unknown reason. So OSX users, burn the disc on a Windows 10 machine and it will be fine and bootable. Etcher software made no difference either on Mojave but did not test on Windows 10 to see if Etcher ...

The two look similar because elementary forked Pantheon Files from Marlin in 2012 after the lead dev lost interest in the project. The dev posted in May 2013 that the two were indistinguishable apart from some text changes and the removal of settings. (The dev had other thoughts on the politics of the project.) The Marlin project was last updated a month ...

Also, Libreoffice takes a lot of space. This contributes to making the iso smaller.

With Elementary OS's Juno release, this option is conveniently placed in the System Settings.
