Aha! Now "Catalogue" will make sense to most people even more than

The catalogue will support returns (deinstallation :). Make sure that
the catalogue says "Free" next to each item otherwise people will be
nervous that they're going to be charged and can't find out how much.
Also "Free" in a catalogue sounds better than items obtained from a
simple free service.

It could also support more than just applications (and "features" from
my previous email) like gnome-art desktops, gtk themes, etc.

so call it "Ubuntu Catalogue".

the sake of a good argument). My employer had nothing to do with this
