Hi! I'm Nathan Hoad

Ubuntu Brainstorm

Ubuntu launched its new feedback site the other day. Brainstorm sites seem to be growing in popularity recently with Dell's Ideastorm site and GIMP's UI Brainstorm blog proving to be useful in getting quality ideas from the people who use their products.

After looking through some of the ideas I found that one suggestion of mine had already been raised. Previews of images in the Gnome open dialog is something that seemed obvious but had yet to be implemented until now (it's going to be in Hardy).

I think one of the best ways to design a product for users is to know what they want, and asking them what they want is a good way to start .

If I just made your day a little better then thank me with a coffee or maybe a a pizza
