    Phoronix: There's Still Interest In A Fedora Software Center

    It's a topic that has been brought up before, but there's still a number of users and developers interested in seeing a "Software Center" / "App Store" for Fedora Linux...

    For linux or GNU/Linux as whoe community a Software Center that is distrubtion indepent is better, espacially for saving the most unique factor that all distrubtions are some way different but in some way the same, which improves the flexibillity of Linux.
    A distrubtion dependent store only helps the distrubtion that has it and may be leaves the pupblicity from GNU/Linux and moves them to the distruntion like with Ubuntu (go and seek the Linux on ubuntu.com).

    What you want is basically steam, desura or similar tools which just install apps in your home.

    You meant me? If yes this wasn't what I meant.

    I'd also rather have a Linux software center instead of 'distribution' software center.

    This doesn't make any sense. Every distribution is an operating system in itself, a closed ecosystem.
    They might share components, but they're still separated.

    If I see exactly the same software center in two distros, I expect the software I download there
    to work exactly the same as well, which isn't always the case (it just appears this way on the surface).
    Different distros might package different things together, or even apply different patches and
    compile in separate ways.
