Gnome three point six will surprise us in many ways. After the redesigned Shell we will get a new pretty package manager and ..a bit further a brand new fancy software center!
A week ago we covered the new offline installer and today we’ll show you the fresh latest mock ups from the new package manager.
What is the most important change to the package manager, other its new looking, is that we have a human readable description of the updates, and this is something that many people will appreciate. Of course the ability to check the advanced info of the update remains. Its great.
Gnome developers also work on an software center on the top of gnome-packagekit. In theory that means that it will run in every Gnome distro out of box. Before you get too much excited this is a work in progress and will not be shipped in next Gnome. My guess is that will arrive one release after, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a quick look .. Enjoy :)
Simple and professional with the typical Adwaita theme and the next generation Gnome applications layout that targets on small screens. I really doubt that we could buy a commercial software from here, but this isn’t really a problem.
There aren’t so many commercial Apps in Linux and normally you buy them directly from the Publisher web-page.
It was impossible not to compare these two side by side. But we won’t comment. We let you to speak your opinions :)
