Are there any plans to replace Ubuntu Software Center?

Asked by Simon

I'm curious because I personally think its a piece of junk. It only works about 50% of the time for me, and it look out of place and ugly with the rest of the elementary apps.

I'm no authority on the matter, but as far as I know the Ubuntu Software Center is the best alternative available at the moment. So to resolve your complains, rather than trying to replace it, I think a more viable solution would be to rework the appearance of the software center in elementaryOS, and see if patches that can be submitted that fix the crashes (then again, what crashes do you have ... it could be that there is something broken on your installation which causes problems that don't occur with other people in general).

Yes. We're collaborating with Lubuntu on
The good thing about it is that other distributions may be interested in it too (they're using a hacked-up USC at the moment) so once it takes off we won't be the only ones to hack it. PackageKit developers have been very helpful and welcoming too.

Can you help with this problem?
