"Ubuntu takes a lot of punches from time to time for its
marketing and even its interface. Some feel Ubuntu is dumbed down
and oversimplified, while many others think it's innovative and
user-friendly. Where ever you fall in the debate, one developer
thinks some elements of Ubuntu should land into openSUSE. In fact,
he has packaged up and pushed them to openSUSE:Contrib.
"Nelson Marques, Fedora and openSUSE contributor, thinks Ubuntu
indicators are the bee's knees. Actually, since Ubuntu is the
dominant distribution in his corner of the world he thinks using
some of its more familiar elements might help users migrate to
openSUSE. He said, "We don't want to make of openSUSE a 'clone' of
Ubuntu, instead we want to make the openSUSE experience more close
to what people already use."
