Re: Firefox & LibreOffice included by default
This is great news! Since my initial forays with UGR I had found it more
straightforward to install gnome shell on vanilla Ubuntu though that is
only because I had worked with UGR first.
let me offer you our family of five's demographics:
libreoffice 80% (20% ms office / windoze)
other games 0%
web e-mail 90% (10% ms outlook / windows)
rhythmbox 60% guayadeque 20% gmpc / mpd 20%
the ms stuff above comes from my spouse who is compelled to use windows
through her work. however in our family you can see we have fixed Ubuntu
Not to be a Google cheerleader here but for those of us who have fallen
under the spell, it would be cool to have a "google control center" that
enables things we all use from Google that could be integrated into say the
Gnome shell as say "favourites" at the top of the screen...
* translation (I think there is an app for this currently)
* use Drive as a cloud drive
* open a browser window as GMail
* empathy as Gtalk (I bet there is one of these already)
C'est ma façon de parler.
