Canonical has launched a preview of the Ubuntu Developer Portal service. This is a self-serve web-based service where independent software vendors wishing to sell their software via the Ubuntu Software Center can be managed via a standard developer program.
This is really cool, I hope I'll actually be able to sell some of the programs I've made.

You'd be surprised. I know many Linux users that pay for Linux software just to support the developers.

I would be more than willing to pay for good Linux software, but only if they're prepared to actually make the software run smooth, and improve it over time.

This might bring a lot more useful tools, and games to Linux as well. I'm all for more Linux software. Free or for a fee, I like more options.

This is a great idea. Kinda like Joomla. A lot of these open source people are making all the apps for the tablets/smart phones. Lots of money there.
