New Ubuntu version makes software installation easy

,----[ Quote ]
| One of new features of the latest version, 
| Ubuntu 9.10, which might appeal to an 
| average user, is the ease with which the 
| software can be added and removed. Some 
| users might have found this process 
| difficult about Linux distributions 
| generally. Ubuntu has been making 
| improvements on this front over the years.


Ubuntu 9.10 Software Center: For better or worse

,----[ Quote ]
| The latest Ubuntu release is out, being 
| used, and being praised and shot down at 
| all points. So far, the vast majority of my 
| experiences have been outstanding. The 
| hardware recognition is tops, all of the 
| interfaces are slick and stable, the boot 
| time is getting faster and faster, many 
| sound issues have been resolved, and 
| software is just as easy to install as it 
| has been in the past. Or is it?

| Ubuntu 9.10 users can now use 
| allmyapps.com, the easiest PC setup 
| solution which makes people lives easier 
| when it comes to finding, installing and 
| reinstalling their favorite desktop 
| applications.

Canonical Unveils The Ubuntu Software Store

,----[ Quote ]
| Well, those are the plans at least. As you can see from the screenshots,
| right now the Ubuntu Software Store is quite basic and really does not
| deliver anything new to the Ubuntu package management stack besides a
| simplified user-interface. The main screen provides icons for different areas
| (Accessories, Education, Internet, Office, etc...) while there are basic
| search capabilities, a list view when looking at packages in a specific area
| or the search results, and then a basic individual package view. Obviously,
| there is a whole lot of work left to be done before Ubuntu 9.10 rolls around
| and even more is ahead for future releases. Look for the Ubuntu Software
| Store to appear in Ubuntu 9.10 Alpha 5.
