Bringing fun back to the desktop...

After Jorge linked me up with this idea

I quote from the blog post:

I think it would be fun to add an achievement system to the Ubuntu Desktop, like is done on Steam and XBox.

The tricky part is tracking various events and finding amusing correlations. For example, if your screen-saver kicks in 40 times in a single 24 hour period, you could earn the “Alternating Current” achievement, indicating that you’re being repeatedly interrupted all day long

I decided to give it a go and I already have a very early prototype of what I call "OMG!" since it will be co-maintainer by "OMG! Ubuntu!"(trophy ideas) and "some Zeitgeist devs"(Core Application)

Here are our 2 first trophies that already work...

Stay tuned...
