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 see a big problem. Mostly when you open the dash you'll be looking for local files and apps, even if you are a frequent buyer of for example amazon downloads (and a guess is that most Ubuntu users aren't). So sending all queries to canonical's servers and downloading the results will just waste data traffic and battery 99% of the time.

Hopefully you can still just apt-get purge unity-lens-shopping in 13.04.
