Latest GNOME 3 Nautilus Mock-ups Point to Refined Look
NOME designer Allan Day has updated GNOME 3′s Nautilus mock-ups with a refined new look.
The changes see Nautilus follow GNOME 3′s new application design patterns.
Updated – needed?
Recent updates to Nautilus in GNOME 3 have streamlined the once button-heavy interface. The new designs take this a step further by removing the left hand ‘places’ pane entirely.
Instead, the removed items would be accessible by right-clicking on the ‘Places’ button. Here entries are laid out in a horizontal rather than vertical format.
Will these mock-ups make it into code? Is this Nautilus’s new look? Time will tell on the front – but I can’t help but hope that this is the direction that Linux’s premier file-manager takes.
Ubuntu Machines On The Store
Imagine walking into a PC store and being greeted by a large Ubuntu-branded display with a host of Ubuntu-powered devices for sale.
Well, if you’re a PC-seeking shopper in China you’ll have over ample opportunity to see just such a display, as Canonical’s new retail partnership with Dell puts Ubuntu-powered machines in over 200 stores across the country.
This partnership sees Ubuntu pre-installed on a range of Dell computers, and backed up by colourful and informative in-store marketing. Staff will be trained in the advantages of Ubuntu so that shoppers are given helpful and accurate information about Ubuntu and what it offers.
If you’re going to try and reach your goal of 200 million Ubuntu users by 2015 then promoting Ubuntu in a country of 1.3 Billion isn’t a bad place to start, is it?
