description: updated

The software center is integrated directly into the dash, in the sense
that you can search in the dash and find apps which are not yet
installed, and clicking on them takes you straight to the software
centre page for that app!

Oh, i didn't know that, but it's cool!

Indeed - the bug here as Omer points out, is that the Dash is currently not rendering the results we find from the software center (aka the Available apps).

summary: - add software center to the dash
