At the moment, the Ubuntu Software Store is not installed by default in the current development release of the upcoming Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) distribution, but it can be easily installed by searching "software-store" in Synaptic.

The goal of the new Ubuntu Software Store application is to replace many system-administration programs, such as Synaptic Package Manager, Add/Remove, GDebi, Computer Janitor and even the popular Update Manager tool, in order to offer to both the new and experienced Ubuntu users an easier and more intuitive way to search, install, update or remove applications.
