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?

By "review it" do you actually mean:

"quickly skim through it, looking for any potential problem wording; slow down at such red flags and actually read these sections where potential legal problems may arise to protect ourselves from lawsuits (aka. money loss); continue skipping through to the end"... and then click next just like everyone else does?
