Re: [tdf-discuss] Experimental UI for LibreOffice proposal


My mistake, thought this was on user list, discuss list seems more
appropriate but expanding it to UX list also seems good. Even getting some
developer input just to understand what a huge undertaking this is would be
useful.

Again, personally I like the look ;) Just unsure of "the point" of
discussing it if it's never going to happen -- and I could very well be
wrong about that as well, just think the wrong people are being asked if
that's the case.


Best,

To be clear, the underlying image was created by Paulo José. Working
on smaller screens is a good question, but you have to get something
before you make it work with additional constraints. LibreOffice has
two challenges, looking good on the upcoming high-res screens, and
working okay on the smaller screens. I think as a start, the focus
should be on >~1280 pixels wide screens.


Really not trying to be pessimistic but in all truth, I don't see this
happening. I've seen the work before and personally I like it quite a bit
but you have three major issues:

1. Lack of any kind of consensus, without UX input it's kind of DOA. Doing
a ton of work and then showing it to them seems worse than working with
them and getting their feedback as you plan. There may have already been
extensive talk about this already within UX, a quick email over there might
result in a huge savings of time on your part.

2. Lack of developers to implement -- if you look on FDO you can see a
massive list of bugs that are being worked on and awaiting work. Having a
developer spend months implementing this is unlikely as they focus on more
pressing issues

3. Lack of funds to pay someone else - for this you're really probably
talking about $10's of thousands of dollars.


Just my two cents, feel free to take it or leave it.


Best,
Joel
