Hi all,

 

Something i noticed:

Why does Bodhi have an online appcentre with a few applications while other distro's have a software centre which contains a lot more applications?

 

If you look, for example, to a distro like Elementary OS, their appcentre/software centre is packed with a lot of available applications, easy to install and remove. To browse all applications/packages i'm using Synaptic and/or the terminal to install certain packages/applications.

 

Is it possible to have an appcentre or software centre like Elementary OS in Bodhi instead of having an online appcentre which is far too narrowed down regarding the available applications?

A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

Sure, you can always install gnome-software or ubuntu-software (which is gnome-software).

Well, it written in The wiki. :D  

 

The AppCenter features a great selection of excellent software, all of which will run without problems on Bodhi Linux. Either search for the software by name in the Search box, or select from the listed categories to see what’s on offer.

It not supposed to be exhaustive, but an "elite" picks, best apps for different kind of needs.   :lol:

 

and Synaptic just one console line away, for exhaustive list. Better yet, add GetDeb and PlayDeb Repo.  ;)

Philosophical difference. People are often paralyzed by too many choices. People who do not know what software they need for a given task don't need to shift through 10,000 packages to find the right one.

 

People who do know what software they need often don't need a GUI to get what they want.
