Thousands of Ubuntu/Linux software projects are hosted on Canonical's Launchpad service and so many of the PPAs for Ubuntu are also located on Launchpad it seems mad not to intergrate this into the Software Centre. So much great software for Ubuntu can be found on Launchpad but it can't be installed on Ubuntu easily. Surely if Canonical own Launchpad and build Ubuntu they can intergrate the two and allow Ubuntu users access to thousands of other applications without the use of a terminal.

also anyone concerned with security, the issue is non trivial and easy to deal with. All those apps are open source anyway, making it even easier to verify.

the ratings from the community, as well as a "Report button", will handle any "bad apple" that the approval team would had missed.

wow, another awesome mockup.

something like this definitely needs to be implemented.

have you sent the mockup to the mailing list and to the guys at omgubuntu?

It does look a bit cluttered, but the idea is definitely needed! There are plenty of good Launchpad projects waiting to be discovered.
