View Full Version : The Ubuntu shop has gone crazy

All of a sudden it looks like a real shop instead of a "support us with swag" type of thing. The US one looks particularly fresh.
My opinion on this is not fully formed yet (took me completely by surprise!). The site emits the strangest feeling that Ubuntu has turned into a clothing line.

https://shop.ubuntu.com/

They need to wipe out that text in the welcome image, though, and do the links at the bottom inside a semi-transparent block with CSS. Right now it doesn't scale (and it probably doesn't translate).

Looking snazzy. I wonder if it was Canonical's new visual team they hired recently whom did it.

They don't ship to Canada come on! I have to spend a fortune on shipping to get it from Borehamwood, Herts, UK. That costs a lot of money and it takes a long time to get your stuff. I don't want a Ubuntu Canada store I just want to be able to get my stuff from the US.

Why does the USA get almost everything first?

Awesome, I saved $16 on that "I do it with Ubuntu" shirt (got one at the Ohio LinuxFest a few weeks back for free).

Too much splash page.
