#SoftwareFreedom is important, but just as we can't expect everyone to code their own software from scratch, we can't expect them to transition to freedom-respecting software that they find impossibly confusing to use. #UX matters, and we need to help #FreeCode developers learn to create better UX, and be welcoming when people with UX experience get involved in free code projects.
@strypey I have a friend who talks about this. she is a non-techie environmental activist who has been working with geeks to create open source solutions for activists to publish online. The poor user interface of a lot of free software is a major bugbear for her, and I think she has a good point. She can see the point of the politics of free software, but without usable interfaces it is going to remain a geek enclave.
