Why Ubuntu Software Center is not Widely Accepted

Last day, ubuntu MATE developers announced their decision to drop Ubuntu Software Center from default installation. In this context, an article published in softpedia examines, why Ubuntu Software Center is not widely accepted by community.

Ubuntu MATE recently decided to drop the Ubuntu Software Center and it will not longer be available with the upcoming 15.10 Alpha 2 release. This is interesting in itself, but this editorial is about another aspect. From the looks of it, a very large part of the Ubuntu and Linux community really hates the Ubuntu Software Center.

In case you didn't already know this, the Ubuntu Software Center is a tool in Ubuntu distros that acts both as a store and a package manager. It's one of the first stores that made its way into an operating system and there are even some rumors around that the Mac App Store copied the Software Center from Ubuntu.
