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?

My rant about changing distribution goes to everyone now crying all over the Internet that they are now dropping Ubuntu.


I use ubuntu for about 7 years, now I use 10.04 LTS. It was the last time I upgraded even before official launch. The reason is simple: I want a simple system. It is just my opinion, but ubuntu is getting worse every version. Linux Mint seems to be a good way to go now..
