Filed under
Ubuntu

Ubuntu Software Center is getting a complete makeover in its GTK3 avatar and first tech preview of this whole new look landed today in Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot.

The new interface features a carousel at top for banners and featured items. Software categories have been moved over to the left with New and Top Rated apps section at the center of the main home page. Many sub-categories have their own top rated section now. The current sidebar in Ubuntu Software has been removed completely and a new new toolbar with drop down categories have been added at the top, giving a much cleaner look.
