"LXF: One of the most talked about things so far is the
retention of 'no brown'. Are you thinking greens?
"MS: No. What I'm thinking is that we've built a team inside
Canonical that's really passionate about design and about how you
make software more open, more usable, by focusing people's
attention on the right things at the right time. We have the
capacity to do a great job.
"Brown has worked really well for us. It's distinctive, warm,
human and friendly. But it's also challenging in a bunch of
different ways. At this stage, there's no concrete decision as to
what the next sort of theme will be. But we're starting to have the
capacity where I'm confident to say, "Okay we can do something else
now that might last five years." But I can't pre-empt that, I don't
know what it is."
