Happy birthday GNOME! One of our favorite memories: planning and hacking alongside GNOME and GTK folks in SF in 2015. Everyone was so kind and accepting of us even though it was the first time many had met in person.

It's our birthday today! We are now the wise age of 22. 😋 Join us in reminiscing these past years by sharing some of your favorite GNOME memories!

Our new blog is officially here. Come read about why we left Medium and how we built a crazy fast, privacy-respecting blog just for you.


Accessibility features shouldn’t be some separate, second-class experience; instead, software should be accessible by default. Like curb cuts improve sidewalks for everyone, accessibility has benefits for all. blog.elementary.io/accessibili

If you’re enjoying the design insight from the Medium blog this week, here’s a mini thread of Cassidy working through some updates to AppCenter. We have these sorts of discussions and iterations every day behind the scenes, but it’s always fun to share a peek behind the curtains!

Check out Onboarding—our new app designed to improve the first-run experience and updates on elementary OS—and learn how it fits into an upcoming major update to the OS. Plus, dive deep into the iterative design process behind the scenes. buff.ly/2M8TDKD

When an app wants access to your location on elementary OS, it has to ask. We show a prompt telling which app and how precise it’s asking—and you can always revoke access later in Security & Privacy settings. Because your data belongs to you, and only you. buff.ly/2XIgbsF

Get work done. Or play.

Stay productive and focused with Multitasking View, Picture-in-Picture, Do Not Disturb, and more. Or keep work out of sight when watching videos or playing games. elementary OS is built to cater to your workflow. buff.ly/2GarNd2

elementary OS comes with a carefully considered set of apps that cater to every day needs so you can spend more time using your computer and less time cleaning up bloat. Looking for more? Just open AppCenter to choose from tons of pay-what-you-want apps. buff.ly/2JwoJtS

User friendly. And keyboard friendly.

elementary OS is easy to pick up as a new user, but that doesn’t mean it’s dumbed down; keyboard shortcuts keep you productive whether it’s your first day or your thousandth—just tap the ⌘ key to see a cheat sheet. buff.ly/2jGzrUE
