More Help App design ponderings

Daniel McGuire is unstoppable. The work I mentioned yesterday was great, here’s some more, showing what would happen when the user selects “Playing Music”.   More feedback we received so far: Kevin Feyder suggested using a different icon for the app. Michał Prędotka asked if we were planning to add more icons/pictures and the answer […]

Ubuntu 15.04 is changing the game

15.04 is out!   And another Ubuntu release went out the the door. I can’t believe that it’s the 22nd Ubuntu release already. There’s a lot to be excited about in 15.04.
