Graphics, User Interfaces "A statistical analysis shows that icons with less detail score better in terms of usability. It seems to be an easy truth: too much detail in icons confuses the users. So we wondered whether we could find any evidence for this truth in the data of our large scale test of the LibreOffice Icons."

Fedora 18's new installer had me looking all over the place and not finding stuff. This craze of low-contrast themes, minimal icons, and frosted glass looks needs to die.


Previous Anaconda was: to that, now do that and now do that. New installer reminds me a Slackware, where you decide what to do in what order you want. And if you don't want to customize software you can skip this part entirely. As well as setting root password. ;)

Concept is nice, but installer home screen is a little confusing.

Slackware LOL! I don't think I could imagine anything less Slackware-like if I tried. The Slackware installer is simple and intuitive; the new Anaconda is a glitzy, confusing, low-contrast mess.
