Ubuntu AppCenter – The future package manager for Ubuntu

The following is only an idea, but it could become reality in one of the next releases of the popular Ubuntu operating system. Back in August 2005, Matthew Paul Thomas submitted, on the Ubuntu wiki page, an idea and design of a piece of software that would unify all the existing package managers in the Ubuntu distribution. At the moment, the software is called AppCenter, and it was recently brought into spotlight. If you look at the mockup below, it pretty much looks like the Add/Remove application that is already an important part of the Ubuntu OS, but… if you look closer, you can notice that it also includes the ability to retrieve security and software updates.

To summarize, AppCenter or whatever its name will be in the future, will definitely replace the popular Synaptic Package Manager, Update Manager, Add/Remove, GDebi and System Cleaner applications, in order to offer to the new or experienced Ubuntu users an easier and more intuitive way to install/update/remove software packages.
