Improving The Linux User Experience For African Users

As a frequent Linux user, I have learned that the challenges some users face while interacting with it come from a perception of its rigidity. My talk will help users explore the various streams of open source desktop customization that will further improve user experience with Linux.

In my experience with Linux personally and in training others, I have noticed a presumption that Linux can only be used as an alternative operating system on reasons mostly based on its lack of flexibility with user interactions. Surprisingly, even as an alternative operating system very few people are aware of the various awesome packages it has to offer and the new features that have been added over time to improve user experience. I will love to share my experiences on how the addition of some features helped me better perform my job.

For the purpose of this technical session, we will be using the Fedora distribution of Linux and at the end you will know: 

  • An introduction to open source Desktop Applications available on a Linux server and its features.
  • How to install and configure open source desktop packages.
  • Explore  desktop office applications packages.
