Well, I wish you the best. Cheers. - Feb 29 2008
I don't mean to anger you, sir, but some issues:

1) You can run synaptic without admin privileges in order to search for packages. It pops up a warning telling you that you won't be able to change things, but you can still look.

2) Sure, I admit dpkg is command line, and there are people that don't like that.

3) aptitude is a graphical tool. Try aptitude -v. It has an ncurses interface that is actually rather nice and easy to use without having to read documentation.

4) Ubuntu's default package tool also closely mirrors your functionality, iirc.

5) People make a lot of different music players because they don't tend to agree on the layout or what the music player should or should not do. I agree that competition is good -- and I accept that this is still an early version of your program.

I see that you have put a lot of effort into it, and I too (as a programmer) would be hurt that someone doesn't really see how it's useful. I'm not telling you to stop your project and to forget about it -- rather the opposite.

The reason I originally went to see what it is that you offered is that I hoped it had features above those that other things have. For example, if you could incorporate searching for a .so or part of a package like dpkg -S does, that would be instantly useful. Neither synaptic or anything else I know of (except dpkg -S) does that.

Also, perhaps you could implement other value-added features. Perhaps you can think of a smart recommendation system that would figure out what the user likes and suggest to them new packages that they might find useful.

Perhaps it could easily display the repositories that you have access to.

Perhaps it could search based on author...

I don't know, I'm just throwing out some suggestions. I'm sure a lot of them are bad.

My point, is, though -- you're my brother in that we're both open source developers and I don't aim to wound your or hurt your project. I just humbly suggest that your project's abilities are entirely eclipsed by the commonly pre-installed Synaptic. So far, the only thing you have over it is a better, quicker interface. Perhaps you would consider adding more to your program in future releases that would make it better than Synaptic's search? - Feb 27 2008
Uhm? Doesn't Synaptic already do 95% of this? And... the smaller Ubuntu installer as well? And... dpkg -S? And the graphical aptitude -v?

I'm not sure I really see how your program is needed. Could you explain?

(Still, it looks nice) - Feb 27 2008

Yeah, well done. If the SVG looks different in, say, Eye of Gnome compared with Inkscape, I wouldn't worry. EOG (and firefox) seem to get it wrong rather often, I blame less developed libraries. - Feb 21 2008

Not to mention that the icons in the preview look like they've been taken into Inkscape, enlarged by doing the cheap conversion into svg which makes them look crappy, then exported back to png.

"beh"

Kind of a negative trend we're having with stealing icons, tweaking them a tiny bit, then redistributing under another name. I've been a member on Gnome-look for a long time now... and I'm pretty sure I recall that once upon a time, people actually used to make icons rather than just distribute other people's. - Feb 11 2008

I don't know about his dock, but if you want a nice Mac-ish dock for Linux (not exactly the same, but more powerful in some ways), try getting Avant Window Navigator. It's VERY good. (I've actually contributed to it)

I think that Apple did a good job, but I think they are also evil, and I hope that the Neo+OpenMoko phone (with Linux on it) will blow the iPhone out of the water next month (although this seems less likely due to less advertising).
