[font="Verdana"]Wanted to let everyone know that Canonical has opened up the developer.ubuntu.com portal at https://myapps.developer.ubuntu.com to a public beta.

What is the Ubuntu Software Center?
It's the primary tool used to find and install software on Ubuntu.
It's available to all users of Ubuntu.

What is the paid marketplace in the Ubuntu Software Center?
It's a channel by which anyone can sell an application or game.
It works similarly to the Apple AppStore or Android Marketplace (blind channel)

What does this mean to me as a developer?
Access to ~20m active users
[/font][font="Verdana"]You can sell or list your free "commercial" app. (free OSS apps go through a different process)
It's another avenue for distribution to a wide, captive audience.

How do I submit an app/game?
Head over to the https://myapps.developer.ubuntu.com portal and submit.

What happens after I submit?
We'll package it up into a native ubuntu package format (APT or .deb) and notify you when it's ready.
You then price it and "publish" it.

What does it cost?
We hold back 20% to cover our costs for packaging, hosting, and providing the payment service.

What can I put in the Software Center?
Anything that will run on Ubuntu. Native apps/games, downloadable games, free to play games, flash, unity, etc.

What games/apps will not be accepted?
We cannot accept demos, trials, or anything with a key or upfront registration requirement.

Go submit your app today!
