What’s wrong with Unity & how we can fix it

Filed under
Ubuntu

Unity is Ubuntu’s innovative new user interface, designed to catapult Ubuntu into the revolution of contextual search, launchers and social integration. The unique design provides an enticing alternative to the likes of Windows and OS X.

But could Unity be better?

One problem when designing user interfaces is maintaining a concise control of UI complexity. As the designers themselves work on the design, they become accustomed to their work and lose sight of how the interface fares when it’s seen by fresh eyes for the first time.

This problem is magnified by the fact designers are surrounded by developers and enthusiasts who easily handle the complexity and generally don’t kick up a fuss.
