Open Source Software & Usability

How does usability impact open source software development? How might usability be applied to open source software?

Welcome to my blog! I will do a "deep dive" on the usability of open source software user interfaces, a usability study of menus and icons in open source software, and examine how usability might be applied to open source software programs. This will involve a case study of a specific open source software program. The output will be a publishable research paper that discusses the usability of open source software and the results of a case study, including a proposed reorganization of menus.

I'll use this blog as an open forum to discuss topics related to open source software and usability. Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments.
