Canonical publishes a survey for us to help you develop Ubuntu 20.04 Focal Fossa

Survey on Ubuntu 20.04 Focal Fossa

In just over four months, Canonical will release a new version of its operating system. Having a new operating system every six months is normal, but what is not so common is that the company that runs Mark Shuttleworth publishes a survey to know what users want. This questionnaire has been published today and I think it is worth participating because it will take little time and can help a lot.

The survey aims to improve or illuminate the path of development of Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Focal Fossa. In fact, the second question, the first thing that we can fill by entering text, asks us "How can we improve Ubuntu", where, for example, we can add that they correct the problem of GNOME that does not allow us to drag articles from / to the desktop (personal opinion). Canonical's intention is to know what we like about its operating system, but also what we don't like about it.

The survey will help improve Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

The problem with this Ubuntu 20.04 survey is that It's only available in English. Of course, with basic knowledge, filling it out will cost us less time than the 10 minutes that they promise us on the main page.

Among the questions, we have what operating system we use, what we use it for, if we know of any emulation software and how could they improve the operating system. There is also a section in which they ask us what operating systems we use and why, where we can (if so) add Windows for a compatibility issue. And it is that, although we do not like it, there are things that are worth doing in the Microsoft system.

Users interested in doing this survey can access it from this link from Google Docs. Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Focal Fossa will be officially launched on April 23 and this survey will be open until January 10.

    I consider that one aspect to improve is the File Manager (file manager). A smart search function is missing, where the user can separately give clues to file names and file content; as well as giving ranges of dates. In Nautilus, for example, if you search for images by .jpg, once the search is finished you cannot sort by date, name or any other column. The order of presentation of the columns is fixed, for example the date column cannot be put in front of the owner. The column justification feature is terrible, the dates appear on the left along the edge of the window. Frankly as a user, it is unpleasant to use Nautilus. Mate Box is more functional but it is not the default desktop. It would also be very convenient if Nautilus expanded the file compression functions, including options such as password protection.

    I've never wanted to use Ubuntu, nor do I even like Debian. But I really like his use of the color orange and in the survey I would ask for "more orange."
