What Applications are Missing in Linux (Comments from the Community)

https://discourse.destinationlinux.network/t/what-applications-are-missing-in-linux/1011

esbeeb says "We just probably need to hire great UX people to improve the workflow of the apps. Totally agree. UX means so very very much to overall success these days. But many Linux geeks seem to have this puzzlingly locked-on focus on super low level things, quibbling a little too much about totally revamping major low-level subsystems that unfortunately only make things just a little bit better, at the end of the day. If they took that same attention to detail to the UX, they would make 10x the impact on the world, IMHO.

jastombaugh says “@gabmus Absolutely perfectly worded!!! Thank you for posting this. Your point makes total sense, and I wish I had the power to point this out in so many other forums and on a host of podcasts. There is a huge need for Open Source UX designers. I just wish we had the ‘Designers Toolkit’ that could enable these people to ‘rearrange a programs ‘flowchart’ of operations’ or ‘grab an icon/window element’ and edit it. Obviously, I can’t begin to imagine what kind of a powerful program it would take to implement this. But if there was only some way that would enable OS UX Designers to apply ‘UX-Interfaces’ to applications in a similar way that themes can be applied to Desktop Environments. I can dream, can’t I?”

natalx says “I would like to see GOG Galaxy released on linux.”
