"Among the new features of the Karmic releases is the Ubuntu
Software Center, which is an attempt to revamp the add/remove
software function in Ubuntu. Shuttleworth explained that Ubuntu is
headed in the direction of opening up the software delivery
mechanism both to empower third-party ISVs and to make it a
smoother experience for users.
"Shuttleworth is also hoping that the new Ubuntu release won't
give users 'paper cuts,' either. As part of the release cycle for
Karmic, Ubuntu started a project called 100 Paper Cuts, which aimed
to eliminate bugs and trivial annoyances that users had identified.
Shuttleworth reported that for the final release, there had been
some 80 'paper cut' fixes."
