“The Ubuntu Software Store aka USS is a graphical utility for package management in Ubuntu.” is what probably Canonical describes it as but it seems to me a bit more than that and as they’ve promised it will be a Unified Package Handler replacing Synaptic,GDebi,Add & Remove & Other Application management Programs.Though 0.3.10 was the version that was reviewed but I promise you its worth to look after.
So exactly same as their diagrams described ,USS was just the same & easy to use.You still can’t expect a lot of features but even in an alpha release it was working fine.Divided into 11 categories termed as “Departments” it was indeed very we’ll put up though I felt it same as the old “Add & Remove” but without ratings.The installation was on breeze but i wasn’t able to do multiple installation at once.Since its too early to discuss cons,here are few pros of it :
- Very Well Built Interface
- Single Click Installation & Removal
- Well Defined Departments
- Choice Of Adding Sources (though it could’ve been better)
- Screenshot Previews Of Softwares (with a link to website)
The sleekness in placing things really demonstrated that what developers are looking forward to .It will be really a marvelous piece of software in future. Got some innovative idea then do comment here…!!!
Still a way to go as the roadmap suggests.Linoob team wishes best of luck to devs
