DEB Packages Now Open With Ubuntu Software Center by Default in Ubuntu 10.10

Canonical makes another small yet significant change in Ubuntu 10.10. Downloaded DEB packages will no longer open with GDebi package installer by default, instead it opens with Ubuntu Software Center!

I was about to install the new Google Talk plugin for enabling voice and video chat in Ubuntu and seeing Ubuntu Software Center in place of GDebi installer was a real surprise.

In my opinion, that is an awesome move. Canonical's attention to detail is clearly evident yet again. Software Center is indeed getting a lot of attention, which is good.
