“Where is it?” – Ubuntu 10.10 Software Centre now tells you where to find your newly installed app

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

It is often the little things that have the greatest impact and, as such, consider me thrilled to finally see the ‘Where is it?’ feature implemented into the Ubuntu Software Centre/Center for Ubuntu 10.10.

What is it?
A massive usability problem for many end users was installing an application via the Ubuntu Software Centre and being left clueless as to where to launch said app from. No more; the Software Centre in Ubuntu 10.10 now tells you exactly where to find an application after installation, a small but incredibly important addition in enhancing the Ubuntu experience for first-time/new users.
