[Blueprint installing-ubuntugnome-wiki-page] Installing Ubuntu GNOME Wiki Page
Blueprint changed by amjjawad:
[jamesvorder] This page should be as complete as possible. It should contain information about installing in all three ways (wipe drive, side-by-side, and advanced).
The installation of Ubuntu GNOME is the spot where most new potential users get hung up. Ironically, a lot of the time they give up because they don't know how to make the installation media with their original OS. That's why it's important for us to make as comprehensive a guide as possible.
[amjjawad] this is what I have in mind. The installation section to
cover installing Ubuntu GNOME as a Solo System or wipe everything
installed. Side-by-Side (AKA Dual-Boot) and Manual Approach.
[amjjawad] IMHO, this must be the priority for Ubuntu GNOME Wiki & Docs
Team. Once this is complete AND IF we do have more time, we can do
something else but from now (2-Jan-2014) until releasing Trusty Tahr
(April-2104), completing this task is this team priority :)
[jamesvorder] Ali, the way that we did the AutoInstallation page seemed
to work well. You put attachments on the page en masse, and I or Ivan
can caption them. The important first step is to make the necessary
pages (maybe Installation/SideBySide and Installation/Manual) and to
populate them with screenshots. This would put us on track to be
finished really soon with this section.
[amjjawad] consider it done ;)
+ [amjjawad] this page: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuGNOME/Installation/SideBySide is not really like this: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuGNOME/Installation/AutoInstallation when it comes to screenshots. Both should be the same. However, let's keep it as it is for now. Whenever we're free to make them both look good, we can always go back and do this but what does matter is, we have a page and it is ready so the polish can be done anytime :)
+ As always, keep it up!
