<div>A very, very humble suggestion.</div>
<div>I know nothing about programming. I am just a new Ubuntu user trying to figure out the Linux world.</div>
<div>Coming from Windows, the most shocking ferature of Linux distros was the impossibility to install and uninstall programs the one-click easy way. Of course, once I learned how Synaptic works, I quickly understood the superiority of this way of doing things. But my first reaction when I needed a program, such as RealPlayer, for instance, was to download it from its website. I downloaded a
tar.gz file to my desktop, clicked on it, and went nuts when nothing happened. I overcame that. I'm a happy Ubuntu user now. But, even so, wouldn't many new Linux users feel more compelled to pursue in their discovering of Ubuntu if it could deal with those packages more efficiently? Will Canonical promote a standard way to deal with installing and uninstalling programs in the Linux world? That WOULD be Good-bye Windows, in my opinion. Thanks.
