If GNOME stands out for something, it is because of its ease of use. It's the default graphical environment on many of the major Linux distributions, and it wouldn't be if it weren't a good option. It is designed to attract the majority of users, although those of us who prefer higher production tend to end up using a window manager or KDE. Operating systems are not the same as projects, and there are apps in a project that may not be in a distribution. For that reason it exists from today Applications for GNOME.
For example, Ubuntu uses GNOME in its main edition, but the default media player installed is Rhythmbox and not GNOME Music or Lollypop. On the page are collected project applications and others that are designed for use on the desktop, like Kooha, the best option if we want to record the screen now that Wayland is used by default.
Applications for GNOME collects apps from the project and from third parties
Our Apps for GNOME website is now available at apps.gnome.org! It presents the best applications of the GNOME ecosystem.
The goals of GNOME Applications are:
- That people participate, either with feedbacks, translations or financing the project.
- Internationalization: the page is the first that has translated information from the GNOME ecosystem applications. It is a step forward, but I think that "Core apps" is not the best translation for "Core apps".
- Keep the information updated.
- Show information about apps that don't look good on Flathub, such as GNOME Software, Files or Terminal.
Everything that is included in apps.gnome.org are applications that match the GNOME philosophy, that is, they are minimalist and intuitive, and have a design consistent with the rest of the user interface. For example, the aforementioned kooha, an application in which there is little to configure and is practically open and use. Other applications that appear are GNOME Web, Boxes or Gedit.
