Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Ubuntu 12.10 will include advertisements for products on Amazon. It will look like this - if you search, product suggestions will pop up. This seems like a rather slippery slope to me, and I certainly wouldn't want this on my desktop, laptop, smartphone, tablet, or anywhere else. On the web - fine, I'm on your site, not mine - but my desktop is mine, and mine alone. Not that it matters - open source, someone will disable them. Biggest concern: does this mean my search queries get sent across the web?

"Remove the GIMP, without providing a decent, suitable alternative in its place on the standard installation disc."


Who cares? Why does the default install have to come with a bitmap editor? Most people don't need a bitmap editor and if/when they do it's easily install-able. That's what important. Besides, considering GIMP's godawful UI pretty much ANYTHING is better for the average use case.

Just as they "adopted" Unity when it was "ready"? Note the sarcasm.


Unity is their own project, Wayland isn't. Besides, you seem to put an awful lot of importance in something that hasn't even happened.

Hey, if you like the color of dirt, mud and shit, by all means, enjoy yourself


Good job insulting everyone, which happen to be a large part of the non-western world, who like different colors.
