Talk Title Usability and Innovation: The Gnome Desktop
Track Users
Scope General
Synopsis How does a distributed group of developers build a set of components which integrate together into a harmonious, usable desktop environment? This talk will explore the Gnome project\'s focus on users and simplicity: making easy things simple and complicated things hard.

The Gnome desktop has also been a fertile ground for innovation. We will present some of the newest innovations in the Gnome user experience, and show you where we\'re going.
