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?

Regardless of how you spin it now, it fulfils the requirements in the original comment.

It's desktop.
It's developed by people that spend 100% of their time on only that application.(Yes they are a group of people in that company, but they work on the desktop client 100%)
