Browse available packages, browse by category, or search. It also has
a "Mark all upgrades" button to upgrade everything you've got
(Nearly?) every package has a nice description of what it's for, and
when you search you can search the descriptions too. So, if you didn't
know that Kino was a digital video editor, with a couple of keywords,
you'd see it there with the description.
Synaptic is a handy piece of software -- I prefer it over the Mac way
(I have two macs, one with Linux), and over the Windows way.
