The best Windows 7 themes for Gnome Linux Collection

,----[ Quote ]
| There are many Windows 7 themes available 
| for Linux. These themes will make your 
| Gnome Linux similar to Windows 7. Here, are

| Linux. To install these kind of theme, you 
| can read my previous tutorial.


KDE Application Indicators In GNOME

,----[ Quote ]
| Something we have been spending some time 
| working on in this cycle has been fixing 
| the mess that is the system tray. This is 
| based upon an awesome specification 
| submitted to Freedesktop by KDE. The spec 
| has been implemented by KDE, we have 
| written an implementation for the GNOME 
| panel and it shipped in Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid 
| Lynx Alpha 2.
| This work has a range of benefits:
|     * Better usability: no more confusing 
|     mix of left and right click menu 
|     options.
|     * Multiple indicators can be scrubbed: 
|     click once and move your mouse between 
|     them instead of having to click 
|     multiple times.
|     * Icons are properly spaced.
|     * Separate panel icons can be specified 
|     which helps improve theming.
|     * Better KDE and GNOME integration.



Gnome-Shell, I changed my mind

,----[ Quote ]
| What is nice about the gnome-shell concept,
| is the use of virtual desktops, I know they
| have always been there, but it makes it a
| natural intuitive task. Switching
| applications from one desktop to the other
| is a pleasure, that makes it easy to
| configure your desktops the way you want it
| quickly...


Gnome 3 Usability Hackfest

,----[ Quote ]
| As the GNOME 3.0 approaches, the GNOME
| Community is going to hold a Usability
| Hackfest in London from feb 22-26. Those
| who are not aware about the usability
| project, it aims to make GNOME appearance
| more efficient and pleasant to the users.
| In this hackfest, they are planning to work
| and improve the design and usability of
| some new GNOME 3.0 components.


GNOME Revamps and Renews Outreach Program for Women

,----[ Quote ]
| The approach? Think Google Summer of Code --
| complete with internships, mentors, and
| sponsors -- with an emphasis on team
| contributions rather than stand-alone
| projects.
| GNOME ran a similar outreach program in
| 2006, and received one hundred applications
| within two weeks. Because funds are (always)
| limited, great projects (and talent) had to
| be turned away -- but Google was so was
| impressed by the proposals, it funded three
| additional projects. The 2006 Women's
| Outreach Program had six participants, but
| organizers are tentatively planning on five
| participants this season.
