"Software Center: This is really one of the biggest enterprise-level additions. Gone will be the Add/Remove Software tool and (eventually) Synaptic in favor of the Software Center. Although this tool will be used in the same way as the Add/Remove Software tool, it will have one thing its predecessor didn't have - Commercial Software. That's right.

In order to use Ubuntu One you will have to sign up for an account. You can sign up for either the free account (which gives you 2 Gigs of space) or, for $10.00 USD per month, you can get 50 Gigs of space."
