Last week the first ten Ubuntu paper cuts
were exposed via Launchpad, which are small annoying usability problems with Ubuntu (and upstream applications) that are quite easy to address but simply have not been carried out. In time for the release of Ubuntu 9.10
, Canonical hopes to have 100 of these "paper cuts" addressed. In less than a week, 100 of these paper cuts have been tagged in Launchpad and there's a few more in there too for the KDE version of Ubuntu, Kubuntu.
These Ubuntu paper cuts are split into ten groups and at least one group of bugs should be addressed per week. However, some of the bugs in the later groups are already being addressed at this time. These small bugs range from missing thumbnails on OpenDocument files to over-sized dialog boxes.
The 100 paper cuts for Ubuntu 9.10 "Karmic Koala" can be found on Launchpad
