Re: Thoughts about Unity and some ideas for improvement

2011-04-20 Thread Jo-Erlend Schinstad
It'd be interesting to know how left-handed people feel about Unity.
It's very dominated by super-num, super-w, super-s, super-a, super-t,
etc. This is very nice for right-handed people, since you'd usually
use the right hand for the mouse. But left-handed people would
probably prefer to use the left hand for the mouse, forcing them to
move between the mouse and keyboard fairly often.

This is another good reason to use the alt-key in super-w and super-s,
etc, since that would reduce the necessity of using the mouse so you
don't have to move your hands as often.

 I think that reliability will be the determining factor in whether
this
 is usable or not.  This behaviour would be a win if I don't have to
 worry that hibernate's not going to work - or that my laptop's going
to
 wake up in my backpack and then not shut down properly.

I totally agree with Christopher. The recent discussion on ubuntu-devel
showed that hibernate was broken on a quite huge extend of
hardwares/drivers, especially blob driver where we have no control over
at all (IIRC, nvidia doesn't work when resuming from hibernate. At
least, all my hardware with that card never had for me).

I don't know any left handed person that also uses left hand for using 
the mouse. Perhaps my sample data is rare but that's what I observed.


(I am left handed as well)

Featured Apps for Natty

2011-04-20 Thread Jonathan Thomas
Has there been any discussion on which featured apps will be showcased in
the Software Center for 11.04?  If not, is it too late in the release cycle
to update the list of applications before the release date?  I would of
course like to suggest OpenShot http://www.openshot.org/ be added to the
featured applications, but I'm sure there are many other great applications
that could and should be featured as well.

Thanks!
-Jonathan

We had a very brief internal discussion about it and decided to tweak
the list a little bit, but did not change much. I don't do video
editing, but I would welcome suggestions, though we are pretty late
for natty unfortunately.

Cheers,
 Michael

Re: Proposing to add Rodrigo Moya to ~ubuntu-desktop

 Hello all,

 Rodrigo has worked in the desktop team for several months now, and
 will continue to do so. In my experience he has picked up all the
 necessary packaging skills, is familiar with our processes, freezes,
 revision control handling, and our goals. In the last couple of months
 I did not have anything major to complain about his commits/uploads.

 I propose to add him to the ~ubuntu-desktop team, so that he can
 commit to our branches and upload GNOMEish packages directly.

 He has already been a PPU for a while:
 https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RodrigoMoya/PerPackageUploadApplication

 As per https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DesktopTeam/Developers we need two more
 supporters for this.

 Opinions?

 Thanks,

 Martin
+1 from me.  I've sponsored a number of his packages and have found his
work to be of high quality.
