A few days ago we asked you which applications you would choose to be “featured” application on the shelves of the Ubuntu 10.04 Software Center. Since then the list has swelled from a meagre 4 choices a few days ago to a massive 17 selections now!
AbiWord and Scribus were sent back to the stock room a few days back so have your favourite choices taken their place?
A simple multimedia transcoder for the GNOME Desktop
A multi-track audio editor and recorder
3D graphics application
A fast paced, arcade-style, top-scrolling space shooter
A simple backup tool.
An easy and intuitive way to configure your firewall.
A clone of the popular ‘puzzle bobble’ game
Personal organizer/to-do list application
Helps you do things quicker.
Personal accounting application
Desktop feed reader
Lemmings. With penguins.
3D immersive desktop planetarium
I’m pleased that GNOME Do has made it on to the list, likewise with Cheese and GTG!
I’m equally pleased some lesser-known applications are featured, too. Moovida and Deja Dup excel at what they do and any promotion of them is surely warranted.
Not being much of a gamer I suppose my thoughts on the inclusion of some games is going to be biased. Chromium B.S.U seems an odd choice – perhaps they were aiming for Chromium the browser! That would’ve made a much better highlight as not everyone will be aware that it is available to install from the Lucid repo’s.
As with all of our Lucid coverage – nothing is set in stone yet so this list is subject to change, but for now it shows a great and varied selection of the best applications available in the Ubuntu repos.
