    The Unity 8 apps i phone and tablet only for now. They will probably release Unity 8 for desktop before they make all apps scale good to desktop and instead use Gnome apps instead, replacing one after the other when they become ready.

    And then abandon the whole thing and switch to snappy.

    What about people have bought something. Hows that going to work or does GNOME software support that?

    Usually after I find the name of it I just type "sudo apt-get install whatever" and it's so much faster than the software center.
    I don't know about Ubuntu making anything easier, but I agree about the cl being much faster than the SC (on Fedora).
    Aside from that, I encounter issues with SC "regularly" (as often as not,i s probably a better way of putting it since I rarely use it). It either works or it utterly fails/hangs, and has no useful failure messages afaict.
    I'm constantly surprised by how brittle GNOME software is considering how little functionality it has. This suggests to me that the app frameworks in place are completely inadequate.

    Unity 8 already has a software cenfre.Though only on the phone.Sounds to me like they use gnome software centre in all future unity 7 releases,which appears to be minimal work,then switch to what they are using in unity 8,LTS users are happy,ubuntu gets a better software centre now,instead of 8.

    My thoughts exactly. I'm guessing this means another delay for Unity 8.

    Nice. Maybe by 16.04 I'll switch from Fedora to Ubuntu Gnome. I'm tired of reinstalling binary broadcom driver everytime a kernel update is released.

    The Ubuntu App store have severe technical limitations and was abandoned for years. The most important problem for users was that is that it is slow as hell.

    An App Store is a business critical component that should have been written for maximum performance, not ease of development.
