Hi I am a fedora 17 newbie and a complete fan now. In fact, I totally got rid of Windows in my ASUS k42dy laptop. I noticed that fedora has it's own software center (just like ubuntu) and Yum Extender (I believe it's like Ubuntu's synaptic package manager). I am trying to install some games/apps let's say Open Arena, Frozen Bubble and etc.
In Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, you can explore new upcoming apps or undiscovered cool apps – easily using Ubuntu Software Center. Now, some proprietary cool games are also available, besides the huge collection of free softwares.
Last time I tried downloading and installing updates to Ubuntu on my computer, the update failed randomly. I restarted the computer and tried running the updates again, and same error happened. I didn't have enough time to deal with it at the moment so I ignored it.
We had already done an article on the Top free apps in the Ubuntu Software Center. Now its time to check out the top paid apps in the Ubuntu Software Centre. According to the official reports from Canonical, Trauma is leading the pack following by the Fluendo DVD player. Games and mulitimedia seem to be the preferred choice of Ubuntu users when it comes to paid stuff.
I installed the newest release of Ubuntu 12.04 with the wubi installer. The computer is up and running with Ubuntu, I am typing this in Firefox and I can use all the software that was supplied with the installation. However, it seems there is only a small selection of new apps that I am able to install.
