Kuroo - a GUI for gentoo's portage meets OpenUsability
Back then at akademy (remember, remember those hot days in September?) Tina and I gave a talk about personas. Together with the attendees we discussed target user groups for a graphical frontend for portage, gentoo's package management. A few months earlier Karim Ryde happened to registered at OpenUsability.org, seeking usability advice for his project Kuroo - a KDE frontend for portage. Now put these efforts together, add another usability engineer from OpenUsability, namely Bjoern Balazs, and what do you get? Right, a surprisingly usable GUI for portage.
