An Unified Theme for Ubuntu

Posted by Paolo Sammicheli on January 27, 2009

During the last Ubuntu-it Meeting we talked about what we should love to see in the next release of Ubuntu. We called this session “Messages in a Bottle” because me and Milo where planning to attend UDS Jaunty.

One idea I really liked was about the creation of a Unified Theme for Ubuntu. Hey, I’m not talking about making Kubuntu brownish by default 😉 I’m talking about giving a chance to have a unified theme to the users who use mixed application in their daily work (KDE apps under GNOME or vice-versa). Other distributions made it long time ago already (i.e.: Mandrake with Galaxy). After talking further about it with many people I opened an idea on Brainstorm.


Take a look at it: vote and comment!

Hello Planet!

Posted by Paolo Sammicheli on January 19, 2009

Here we go! This is my first post on Planet Ubuntu, and it’s also my first post in my new English Blog. Introducing myself: I’m Paolo, from Siena, Italy (yep, in the middle of Tuscany). I’m a member of the Italian LoCo Team where I’m admin of the “Gruppo Promozione”, the Italian version of the International Marketing Team. I’m also a translator and an Italian Website Team member. That’s all for now folks, I will talk more about me in the next posts. I leave you with a photo that I’m very proud of. Just to test photo inclusion on this blog 😉

OK, looks like it’s working good P
