Presenting Ubuntu Brainstorm

February 28, 2008 at 5:41 pm | Posted in xubuntu | 3 Comments

Ubuntu Brainstorm is a new site that allows you to vote for improvements, features, ideas and fixes for Ubuntu. It is made in order to bridge the communication gap from the developers and users. From the article posted at The Fridge:

An idea on brainstorm can easily be linked to a Launchpad blueprint as well as to a bug or a forum discussion thread. In this way we expect to bridge the locations where ideas are often submitted now, as forum posts or bug reports, with the blueprint format they should be expressed in to be implemented.

Here are the current ideas for Xubuntu: http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=Xubuntu&ordering=mostvotes

Do you have an idea that you’ve been itching to share with the developers, but didn’t know how? Now’s your chance to post it at the Brainstorm!

  1. Yay, my Xubuntu idea is on top! :)

  2. We’ve built something similar, called UserVoice, that enables any company or community to have a tool like this, but we do a little more to create a market around good ideas rather than just letting everyone vote everything up.

    You can check out UserVoice and request your own page (we’re in semi-private beta) at http://example.uservoice.com

  3. Richard, how friendly is UserVoice towards open source? Is it easy to get the data out, to integrate it into a project website, perhaps even an open source version? That would make it an excellent tool :)
