Linux Installing software on Linux has gotten progressively easier over the years, down to being downright foolproof in Ubuntu's Application Center. However, there is still the problem of each distribution relying on its own frontends and backends, and this needs to be addressed. Members from all the major Linux distributions have held several talks, and have come up with a solution which is already being implemented.

I love collaboration between distributions. But still love current package management. Specially, Synaptic package manager.
Hope they will keep it and something new and easy for novice users is always good.

Specialised software management apps will probably be kept but just for advances users.
