"Synaptic Is Going Bye Bye Soon"

Synaptic is a graphical package management program for apt. It provides the same features as the apt-get command line utility with a GUI front-end based on Gtk+.

 

We all knew this was going to happen at some point since there is a lot of work going on for the Ubuntu Software Center, but here's a confirmation: Paul Tagliamonte, an Ubuntu LoCoCouncil and BeginnersTeam Council member confirmed in a comment on Reddit that Synaptic will soon be removed from Ubuntu.
