Ubuntu Repositories Generator

The biggest benefit and hindrance to using/owning a linux desktop is
the availability of software... by default, linux is not populated
with lots of software, primarily to keep it small, useful, and easy to
manage, however, a lot of people don't realize that they can get more
software than just the ones listed in the software marketplace offered
through the default repositories.  There are a number of repositories
out there, all of them packed with additions, more programs, more
extensions... the world over, there are thousands of programmers
developing for this OS.  So, how does one get a list of the
repositories?  Well, the best way is find a repository generator, and
then add that list to your sources.list.  You will find your sources
at this location: /etc/apt/sources.list.

A good generator to look at for finding such lists can be found here:

Try it out, and if you have any other generators you would like to
mention, please post a reply, I would love to post them!
