Bug description:
  Ubuntu 16.04 will be useless for "normal" people if they can't find every 
software package as they did before.
  To force users to use gnome-software will be a regression!

  Examples:

  In old Software Center, you could add gimp plug-ins (plug-ins are recommends 
and suggests packages of gimp) by going in gimp description and check the 
plug-ins you want!
  In old Software Center, you could install another version of linux kernel by 
typing "linux" then click at bottom left to show the packages.

  Now, they have to use apt-get or install synaptic!
