    I agree with a few points
    - It's slow. Holy crap is it ever slow.
    - Unreadable text with dark themes? The average user probably isn't even going to try to change its theme (which is white), let alone find the menu for changing it.
    - Paid magazines mixed with programs: This I agree with. There must be a setting to disable searching for that. This actually ties in with searching in the dash, which I usually use for opening programs that I don't have a shortcut to like I do in Windows 8/8.1 which I must say is getting worse on Windows too.
    (-Microsoft- started replacing results of actual program names to what they do and it's... well I'm finding search to be taking more effort than it used to.)
    - What you buy is tied to your Ubuntu install: This is a love/hate thing here. For me, and the majority of Ubuntu users, it's convenient. That being said, I'd like it if there was online hosting that was cross distro, maybe even OS, that could handle purchases instead. (Blackberry is actually doing something like that with their BES12 for deploying iOS, Android, and BB10 apps) I know, I know, Ubuntu's Software Center is supposed to be that but I don't feel that it is.

    And as far as the publisher stuff goes I can't really comment on it. What I do like is how I can search for names of things as well as choose to search by technical names. The description seriously helps in that regard. As far as I'm concerned, if people can't find your product or know about it, it doesn't really matter how good it is because no one will be using it. That's the point of the software center. Keep in mind, Software Center is ooooold, like 2009. For something that's meant to be fluid, it definitely needs a refresh - and they're working on it - so no complaints here regarding that.

    As a user:
    - extremely slow
    - unreadable text with dark themes
    - paid magazines mixed with software results
    - what you buy is tied to your Ubuntu install
    I?m sure there are other problems but I?m not gonna launch it to check / remember.

    As a publisher:
    - documentation isn?t very good
    - hard to find how to get support
    - extremely slow support from Canonical (several weeks/months)
    - ridiculous sales
    - no information about your customers (email)

    I?ll also point you to the article on GamingOnLinux about this.
