General Ideas

  • Add a Team of the Week section
  • Tip of the Week

Feature of the Week Ideas

In an effort to have the feature of the week be useful and relevant to the widest possible audience here are some guide lines to follow when writing your proposal.

  1. Try to use applications that are available via Applications -> Add/Remove... (GAI) or secondly Synaptic. These are easier for users to find.

  2. We would like to try to stay away from features that require users to use the command line or edit sensitive configuration files. This is not a strict rule, but more friendly GUI apps are easier for newer users to try. There is a greater chance of someone following your directions and making use of the app if it is easy to install.
  3. We like to focus on good apps/features that are simply lesser known. We like to give these lesser known gems there time in the lime light too.
  4. Try to provide links to the app main web site where readers can find additional information about the app.
  5. Tell the readers why the feature is so useful, maybe how it has helped you. This helps readers understand the reason the app is so great and will increase the likely hood of the reader giving it a try for themselves.
  6. Try to use simple language. This is a newsletter, not a technical API reference Wink ;) .

  7. The OEM installation mode (new in 5.10)
  8. Translating menu entries using Rosetta and language packs (new in 6.06)
  9. Booting from USB devices (new in 6.06)
