Would it not be better to have a 'software center' that includes ALL
software available, be they GUI related or not? Probably based on
rpm-packages, as that is what our system ultimately relies on. A GUI to
handle ALL software available would be better, than one only installing
GUI-related software, in my opinion.

That makes the 'software center' of lesser use, as the user will be
confused when he/she does not find the program/rpm-package/application
he/she wants to install.
