It's currently not planned to remove synaptics. Don't worry about it :-)

About Software-center, I remember the old gnome-app-install program from 
early Ubuntu releases. A very simple UI to easily install programs by 
name, and not by package name. It's something I usually show to people, 
and scared them less than Synaptics :-)

I still think users should install package by searching by the name, 
with a nice UI (providing description, icons ...). Synatics is not for 
"common" users. However, the current LSC is not perfect, but I still 
strongly think that the idea of the software-center is best way to go. 
We just need to implement it properly :-)
