|Apps.Ubuntu.com Should Replace the Ubuntu Software Center|
|September 08, 2014|
This video/blog post is to express my opinion about the website Apps.Ubuntu.com should replace the Ubuntu Software Center. The Apps.Ubuntu.com site can do absolutely everything that the USC can do and a lot of things that the USC actually can't do. There are many reasons as to why the USC should be replaced by this website and in the video I address a few of these reasons.
The reasons in the video are:
I do acknowledge that the Apps.Ubuntu.com website is not perfect...it has a lot of flaws, just as many as the USC in fact but the potential with the website is far greater than that of the USC.
I have shared this video/blog post on many different sites so far so below are some good questions that I didn't think about addressing in the video but will address them below.
AppGrid is proprietary / closed source software so it can not be an option. (full thread on Reddit)
The Dash is TERRIBLE for this because of many reasons but the biggest reasons are...
Synaptic is not a solution because it is not "regular user" friendly. It is easily confusing to most people so it just isn't a practical solution. (full thread on Reddit)
I already addressed this in the video...but Ubuntu One already has functionality for this so connecting that to the website would solve that issue easily. (full thread on Reddit)
What do you think of this idea? Am I wrong? If so, why is that? Want to yell at me about it? That's cool too, here are places you can do that.
