Mission

The Ubuntu DesktopTeam/Mission is to produce a desktop environment that is:

  • stable,
  • usable,
  • accessible,
  • attractive,

  • creating a technical pool of experts about specific desktop elements

Development

The second task is developing the desktop to improve the user experience, both by improving the usability of our existing desktop and developing innovating new interface concepts.

We do this by:
