Correct, this is what I have seen.

It was opened when I clicked on "Extra Audio Production Application". I
forgot to mention, that no Internet connection was established when I
clicked it.

IMO Synaptic is a very good tool for searching software. Linux users
should learn to use such tools, when using something similar to iTunes
e.g. USC, then they miss the advantages of Linux. Better provide more
Links to information, than software that imaginary seem to be easier to
use, but in reality hide the advantages of Linux.

Unfortunately "Ubuntu Packages Search" http://packages.ubuntu.com/
doesn't work good, if somebody is clueless.

I'll rake a look at those software centers later.
