"PackageKit is the KDE front end for PackageKit, whereas Gnome PackageKit is the GNOME front end (see my article "Installing applications in Linux with GNOME PackageKIT.")

"One of the things I like about KPackageKIT over the Ubuntu Software Center is that it can not only install applications, it can update your already installed applications. But unlike USC or Synaptic, you will have to know the name of the software package in order to find it. KPackageKIT does not show all software available. Instead you start up the tool with a blank slate and search for what you want to install."
