Re: Software Center instead of gnome-packagekit


Not really, as I explain on one of my messages, the reason why some users
search for remix is because they don't like Unity (at least my users), they
think Unity is ugly (this is not my opnion).

And, please don't say that they can install GNOME Shell on Ubuntu because
after install GNOME Shell lots of tweaks is need to get a good experience,
on Remix we have this settings by default.
