Linux Linux Magazine has a profile of Daniel Fore and the Elementary project. Elementary is a Linux distro that's committed to a clean and simple user experience, but it's more than a distro - it's actually a multi-pronged effort to make improvements to the user experience for a whole ecosystem of components, including icons, a GTK theme, Midori improvements, Nautilus, and even Firefox. The work that elementary is doing isn't limited to their own distro, and some of their work is available in current, and perhaps future, Ubuntu releases. The results are really striking, and I think it's probably the handsomest Linux UI I've ever seen.

Why use "f.ex." when there is already a perfectly good abbreviation "e.g." available which is more well-known and considerably less grating than "f.ex."?

Because English isn't my native language? I've just never really thought about it and since "f.ex." is used by several of the languages I speak I've just kind of gotten accustomed to it. But sure, if it really bothers you so much that you need to make an entire off-topic comment about it I'll try my best to memorize the "e.g." abbreviation.
