LXer: Beautiful design can drive user adoption of open source software

Published at LXer:

Nowadays we see beautiful design everywhere in our daily life. The digital world is no exception. Many of the websites we visit and the desktop and mobile apps that we use started to be so beautifully designed, that user perceptions on design started to change. As a result, everybody is becoming more design savvy. Users who didnít care about contrast, button color or responsiveness in the past now critique companies whenever they make a user interface or experience update. Do you remember the user reaction after several Digg re-designs? Why donít you use GIMP over Photoshop even though as an average user you wonít need most the extras Photoshop has? There are hundreds of other examples where you will see design and user experience having a great impact on product adoption rates and continuity. Open source software always has the advantage of offering a free alternative to mainstream solutions, but it doesnít guarantee user adoption.
