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.

I never really needed it, but to be honest I would probably choose a different distribution for server machines. It might not be the most "correct" way of looking at things depending on who ask, but when I think servers Ubuntu is the last distro to come to mind. And Canonical has given me reasons to distrust them as a corporation with their actions regarding their desktop OS, so I won't be rushing to forgive them any time soon to try their latest server release. They've raised privacy issues and made it clear that they have a selfish agenda that takes top priority over their users, which they only keep reinforcing (to the point that this story is really nothing new).

First spyware, now adware--all installed automatically with the system. No thanks; the trust is long gone.
