[ Thanks to Stefano F. (tacone) for this link. ]

"It's incautious to talk about an Ubuntu AppStore That said, the project codename is AppCenter, which is similar enough (the word 'store' may have some heavy repercussions among ner..community).

"I can definitely foresee a lot of hype for this project, when it will go live.

"Some of the hottest features may (probably) be: it will be an unified solution to handle all the required functionalities

"user reviews on every package (yay!)
user rating on every package screenshots of the applications (sort of already present in Jaunty's Synaptic - did you noticed ?)
asynchronous download and installation (dependencies getting downloaded first and should install *while* the dependant software is being downloaded)
being much more friendly and explanatory.
better support for paid applications"
