As some have seen in the Alpha versions of Ubuntu MAT 15.10, future versions of this young taste of Ubuntu will not have the Ubuntu Software Center. This has been confirmed by one of the developers of Ubuntu MAT, Martin Wimpress who released the statement this weekend in his Google Plus profile.
This important change in principle will have the approval of Ubuntu and will have a replacement program for newer users but at the moment the name of this alternative is unknown. In the opinion many think that Debian Synaptic would be the manager that would replace it but from the development team it has been announced that Synaptic will not be the program to replace it.
in essence removing the Ubuntu Software Center is not a big change as the channel provided by the software remains the sameHowever, the Ubuntu Software Center is a program of Ubuntu’s own, which means that its removal is a moral blow to Ubuntu.
Ubuntu MAT is looking for a replacement for the Ubuntu Software Center
On the other hand, the mere fact that an official taste is rejected by the Ubuntu Software Center will cause many other flavors to begin to question many things and change genuine elements of Ubuntu regardless of the main distribution.
Some time ago we announced an alternative to the Ubuntu Software Center and Synaptic, this was called App Grid and has all the numbers to be the ideal replacement but nothing is known about it. Personally I am not usually very supportive of the Ubuntu Software Center as there is nothing as light as the terminal and the apt-get command, however symbolically and morally the Ubuntu Software Center is important and its removal is a big change, something that Linux Mint also did a long time ago and the development is now very different from the development of Ubuntu Will this be the end of Ubuntu MAT as an official flavor?
