Where would you like your install today?

We are making some great progress on Anaconda’s UI revamp mockups after last week’s Anaconda team meetings. Here’s the storage flow diagram, now annotated with the screen #’s from the mockups: So let’s dive into the screens as they look so far. These are hot-of-the-press and may suck, so of course we’re posting them here …

Anaconda's flow

I took some time today to translate some of last week’s Anaconda whiteboards to cleaned up flow charts of the screens involved. I used Inkscape and Jesse James Garrett’s visual vocabulary templates to make these. Full screen flow diagram (click to download PDF)

Anaconda Whiteboards

David Lehman and Will Woods are in the Boston area this week so along with Chris Lumens, Peter Jones, and David Cantrell we’ve all been whiteboarding away, planning and refinement on the upcoming Anaconda UI redesign that is scheduled to land in Fedora 17.
These are just whiteboards; I’m hoping we’ll have a more detailed post after our brains cool off from the gears churning so intensely 🙂 Most of the discussion so far has been about the (opt-in) partitioning screens, and overall flow.

Software Freedom Day Boston / Ninja Recruitment

Deb Nicholson, Asheesh Laroia, and the OpenHatch project organized this year’s Software Freedom Day Boston.
I gave a keynote presentation on how design bounties have worked for the Fedora Design team, and the steps to create your own bounty. You may have noticed our newest bounty was posted the morning of Software Freedom Day, and we’ve already got a ninja recruit working on it!

    There were a lot of great talks by Boston-area community leaders. I was surprised to learn, for example, that the local python meetup in Boston is 1200+ members strong. I’m hoping to be able to make some time to get involved in the Boston python community in particular soon.

Fedora Design Bounty: Installer Ransom Notes

Fedora Design Team Bounty
The Fedora Design Team Bounty is a type of blog post where we’ll outline a quick-and-easy design project that needs doing for the Fedora Community, outlining all the tools, files, and other resources you’ll need to complete the project. If you’re a designer and are interested in getting involved in the free and open source community, this is a good opportunity to get your feet wet!

Fedora Installer Ransom Notes

Today, when you install Fedora, you have to wait between 5-45 minutes (depending if you’re using live media or the full installer, and how many apps you select) for the install process to finish. While you wait, this is what the installer screen looks like:
