I understand why currently an ellipsis is used, but it does have value to see the complete OS name.

Andreas, do you have an opinion from the UX pov?

Comment 2 Andreas Nilsson 2016-04-28 08:48:55 UTC
The column has a certain width so we can fit the graphs as well.

I tested this mostly on Fedora, CentOS and RHEL before, all of them with shorter names, so that's probably why this didn't come up before.

One thing we could do is to show the full string on hover, with a tooltip.

Comment 3 Andreas Nilsson 2016-04-28 08:55:43 UTC
Reported this in the upstream tracker.

Comment 4 Fabian Deutsch 2016-04-28 09:11:55 UTC
What about a line break for long OS names? It would be nice to see the complete name on a first glance

Comment 5 Andreas Nilsson 2016-04-28 09:20:11 UTC
Yeah, that could work too.

Comment 9 Dominik Perpeet 2016-07-06 09:00:28 UTC
Will be fixed in Cockpit 0.113

Assigning to myself to track until release.

Comment 11 Stef Walter 2016-07-14 12:21:11 UTC
Likely manual testing needed.
