Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Perhaps most likely to raise some eyebrows is that Ubuntu 13.04 will let users purchase music or apps directly from the desktop Dash, without having to open a browser or a separate client." That's going to go down well.

To the average user/consumer this may seem like a convenience or cool feature, but I myself don't know anybody who uses Ubuntu for anything other than an easy Linux development box.

I could care less myself but it is tiring to see more marketing and advertising rammed down users throats especially in a "Open Source" environment. They are free to modify their creation in anyway they want there are other DE's to install on Ubuntu, if you have decided you want to use this distribution.
