To be honest, I've never thought that Installing Linux in Linux, especially Ubuntu was ever that tough a task, apparently some fans of Windows disagree, so not to be daded - Mark Shuttleworth and his merry band of men (and women) at Ubuntu have taken up the task to get rid of Add/Remove Software, Synaptic Package Manager, Update Manager and Software Sources. Yep, instead, you get one fisher price screen called the App Centre. "Huzzah!", I hear the Apple 'App Store' fan boys cry!
First Glances: App Centre showing Available software (to install), Installed software and Updates.
Whilst we can probably applaud Canonical for once again stepping up to the mark to make Linux even easier to use, surely this was one of those areas that just wasn't that hard to understand in the first place. Anyway, I guess that come a few months time we will be making some new 'This is how you install software' tutorials for you all!... Thanks Ubuntu ;)
The new App Centre will first appear in Ubuntu 10.04 which is due in April 2010. A a polished final product will follow (and probably hail the removal of Synaptic and pals) by Ubuntu 11.04.
