  • Articles on the new Gnome 3 Desktop and on the new Ubuntu Unity Desktop

    We've had plenty of articles in magazines providing reviews of these new desktop. The reviews were great, but what I think is widely needed now is more detailed articles telling people how to use these desktops efficiently. How to customise them. How to optimise them. The biggest challenge to using these new desktops is learning how to use them quickly without going insane wasting lots of productive time experimenting.

    I did a "hands-up" poll recently at a local Linux User's Group. When I say that it's a User's Group - I mean that literally - we are all business or professional people who use Linux computers to support our business and professional activities. We are not Linux Admin Gurus.

    Only 10% of those present were still using the new desktops (whether that be Unity on Ubuntu 11.04, or Gnome 3 on Fedora). The remaining 90% admitted that after trying Unity or Gnome 3 for a while, they had reverted back to Gnome 2.# on Ubuntu, or changed to another desktop (e.g. FVWM and others) on Fedora.

    All indicated that they would change back to the new desktop that was relevant to their Linux Distro, if they could learn enough via magazines or online to enable them to quickly become productive with the new desktops.

    If Linux is going to become a main stream operating system on business PCs (not servers), then the Distro Authors must better manage User Education when they make such large fundamental product changes as recently occurred with Gnome 3 and Unity.

    There you go. That's my rant for today.
