The Linux Software Store Conundrum

For quite some time, I’ve pleaded with the Ubuntu team to consider updating the Ubuntu Software Center. It’s nearly unusable on older PCs, and even on modern hardware this method of software installation leaves a lot to be desired – especially with paid applications.

It’s my hope that this article will not only help each of us take a hard look at the existing methods of Linux software discovery and installation, but perhaps we’ll finally settle on a means of handling paid software titles as well.
