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?

$100 dollars for a license that never runs out, is supported for 10 years (works out at about $10 a year ... and you call that expensive).

The cost argument is negligible given the amount of time, you have support.

I still have my original XP and 2000 licenses and they still work and install fine. $100 is a pittance.
