We posted a week ago that Gnome 3.6 will ship with an awesome configuration tool called InitialSetup that will make setting up a desktop easier and ready to use. This proposal was in whiteboard for a while, but today we have got the latest images of how it will actually look like.
Take a look at images below.
The first screen allows you to select your language, and the most popular languages of the world are listed, along with an option to show more
To make it easier, a search box is also provided making your language selection faster
The next window will setup a network for you, or you may skip that
Finally, a screen to setup your account. Now here is the catch, seems you will be able to login with your Google account here, like you do in Chrome OS or Android smartphones. Smart, I must say, after all we are moving more and more closer to cloud technologies and our desktops need to be in sync with online world. The enterprise login we posted earlier has also been implemented.
The user account creation screen to create a local account. As you can see in the above screenshot, developers seens to be contemplating login from Gmail as well, on the lines of Enterprise Login. We have no confirmation about that at the moment.
Overall, the design and integration looks impressive. InitialSetup is scheduled to ship with Fedora 18 releasing later this year.
