From what I have read there are few like one done by jim hall in 2015, then some through outreachy program in 2017 and 2018. These were for some applications like nautilus , calendar etc. From the looks of it, when a new application or design decision is taken there is no professional usability testing done with each release. and definitely not regularly. I would be glad to be wrong.

@craigmaloney @davidrevoy , but i believe with more artists coming to FOSS this is slowly changing and projects are listening to them, even if the process is slow we do see improvements.

While reading this thread you'll see the issue, (I am guilty of it too) you will see often that the discussion about creative tools in the foss forum often steers towards technical aspect and goes into the developer centric talk. This shows a lack of empathy and a lack of acceptance of the fact that now foss has people with other fields too.

If developers do want their software to be used by users then they need to include their users in the process.

From what I heard and know , there is no dedicated user testing , apart from few here and there. so this is just a myth. If there are user testing, I would definitely want to see the data , blogpost or results somewhere.

@tsturm Thank you so much πŸ˜ƒ , hope it is useful :)

@kushal hmm, The song is nice, but I couldn't ignore the singing in local train and teasing culture shown here. :( ,

May be this evolved into what we have today in Mumbai locals - the bhajan mandalis and the people with loud portable speakers disturbing others
