The Numix Project:
Brought to you by: System76
Numix is all about making a difference in theming. We aim to prove that “difference” and “usability” are two words combined, that can make sense. You get a modern and stylish desktop, spiced up with a pinch of warmth just enough to make you feel like laying in your favourite comfy armchair, with a beverage of your choice in hand.
Works on the icon themes and is the unofficial PR guy.
Georgi is the guy behind the design of Kazam, Unity Tweak Tool, Smuxi, XNoise, Athena and a bundle of more community and third party apps. He is also an Ubuntu member. He writes on omgubuntu.co.uk and his personal blog mechoslav.wordpress.com.
Yeah, we’re doing a custom desktop shell built on top of Gnome-Shell.
More details are to come tomorrow.
For now just have this little teaser.
