Feedback Time – Results


I wish I could be as fast as time flies these days!

Last month, we needed your help by sharing your opinion about Ubuntu GNOME. We were amazed because so many have responded and helped within 10 days – thank you!

Now, this is the 3rd phase and it is time to publish the results:

Obviously, the next step will be the planning phase. The coming days should be very busy for Ubuntu GNOME and we, as always, shall keep you updated πŸ™‚

Thank you!

Feedback Time – Thank you


10 days ago, we have asked our great community to share their opinion regarding both Ubuntu GNOME 14.04 LTS and Ubuntu GNOME 15.04. During these 10 days, 500 users have shared their opinion – WOW!

Ubuntu GNOME Team would like to thank each and everyone who had taken the time to read and answer our questions.

Thank you so much!

This is to announce the end of collection/receiving feedback from our lovely community. Soon (hopefully), we shall share the results and right after that, we shall start planning for 15.10 as per your feedback.

We highly appreciate your help, support and direct contribution to make Ubuntu GNOME even better, Community wise and Distribution wise.

Please note: we have stopped accepting responses.

Thank you!

Feedback Time

Hi everyone,

I just can NOT believe how fast the time flies?! WOW, it’s been 2 months since we have released Ubuntu GNOME 15.04? well, believe it or not, we’re 2 months older now πŸ˜‰

Okay, so while our real life struggle continues, we do our best to find sometime to contribute to our beloved project, that is without a doubt, Ubuntu GNOME.

feedbackBefore we start the planning for the current cycle and the future ones, I thought to do a quick and simple survey and ask our users for their honest, direct and true opinion about Ubuntu GNOME so far. Specially 15.04 (our latest stable release) and 14.04 LTS (our Long Term Support release).

It should NOT take more than 3 minutes of your time πŸ™‚

Please, click here to help us and do the survey.


Thank you so much for your time, help and support!
