To me, mobile friendly is good. It doesn't happen often, but if I need to use the control panel on a phone then it's usually really urgent and important!

However, is there going to be a link to longview, or are you going to discontinue that service?

I tried out the new cloud.linode.com control panel this evening. I agree with other posters here that the old control panel has greater information density, without being cluttered or confusing. That makes it better as I'm concerned. I looked for example for information on the currently installed kernel in the new interface, and never did locate it. It is easy to find (and change) that information in the old interface.

I'm very sorry that Linode is going down the path adopting a new "mobile friendly" interface, sacrificing usability and efficiency. Many other web-based services have already done this. For example, namecheap.com (domain registrar) used to have a very usable, efficient control panel. They replaced it last year with a "modern" new design loaded with unnecessary white space. It now takes many more clicks (page loads) and much scrolling to do the same tasks that were easy in the previous namecheap control panel.

Linode, If you really must continue down this erroneous "upgrade" path , please keep the "legacy" control panel available for those of us who prefer it.

I tried out the new control panel for a second time today to see if anything had changed from my last visit. I think it's alright, but I still prefer the old panel.

Btw. I just realized that the new control panel is only counting the outgoing network usage.

This is what I see in the control panel (37.6GB total):

And this is what the beta cp shows (13GB used):

Is this the intended behavior or just a bug?

That is only showing the transfer pool, which has only applied to outbound transfer for a long time. (Inbound transfer is free.) It's akin to the bar at the bottom of the Linodes list in the old Manager. I can't speak to whether the Network box for each Linode will make an appearance in the new Manager
