DeviantArtist Musl1m has mocked up his idea of how the Ubuntu Software Centre should look as it evolves its ever-growing feature set.

He says: –

“The next version of the Ubuntu Software Centre (version 4.0) will have many new features such as rating applications and he ability for users to donate to their favourite open source projects.

I think that a new interface is also something that version 4 could do with. I know that every version of the Software Centre has had a new interface but all of them especially the latest one seem slightly bland and boring, something with more colour and visuals would be better in my opinion.”

It’s bright and very busy – perhaps a little too busy for some tastes. Whatever your opinions make them heard below or on the artists deviantart page @
