MTS should the support the following purpose: 1a) PRIMARY GOAL: Give novice users hints about tools that are useful in a particular context even if the are not installed. 1b) CONDITION: The tool suggestions - especially for not-installed tools - should be non-obstrusive. The advanced user should have a global option to turn off the suggestions. 2) NICE-TO-HAVE: When the user chooses a not-installed tool, the distro specific package manager should be used to start the installation process for the chosen software.
