an idea to make software center better
I'm going to ask brainstorm.ubuntu.com's moderation to allow this.
When many people install a software, it goes towards many people's objectives.
When people rate a software high, it does well what its author says that it does.
If a software doesn't go towards many people's objectives, but does what its author says that it does well, it appears on top.
We must keep track of usage interest. If a software is read by 100 people and 90 from among them choose to install it, that means 90% are interested in using it.
To keep track of what apps were read, we: don't show more than one app at the same time, show mini description, expand to full description, collapse to mini description and a link to the next app in the current category.
Then, we multiply average rating by usage interest to get a number and sort software by that number.
Do you want this feature in Ubuntu Software Center too?
