I am transferring from 8.10 to 10.10. I was wondering what is the difference between Ubuntu Software Centre and Synaptic Package Manager in 10.10? For what kinds of things do I need to go which?

Both of them are package managers. Software center is simple to use, but synaptic is more complicated and provides more options (more details about packages for example). Synaptic will be removed from Ubuntu soon (but still available to install) since software center can do the work (here).
