AppImage tab on default software app

Rather then having a separate package manager or updater for AppImages. Simply add a tab to the Zorin OS "software" app specifically for AppImages. Integrate or fork one of the existing appimage managers, add a bit of code to run during install to: direct the install into an easily accessible "AppImage" folder in home directory, make a desktop icon, and enable the necessary permissions to have it show up in the start menu and search. The software install experience is a core feature of a user friendly OS, if the goal of Zorin 16 is to encourage Windows users to convert, this feature would go a long way to achieving that. Sure you can do it by terminal and it's fairly easy for anyone with minor experience, but there are allot of people that simply don't have that skill set, or can't be bothered with it.
