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.

All who bash Ubuntu...

...are idiots.

Guys, this Distribution brought a lot of people to Linux and spawned quite a few VERY good Ubuntu based desktops. You have for no other distro such a good documentation and community help. STOP FUCKING BASHING IT.

Yeah, they want to make money so what? Others do that as well with such functionality.

I personally use Mint for my daily work and it is on Ubuntu basis. I also started Linux for "Real" with Ubuntu. Unity drove me away from it, But i do not blame Canonical for trying something different. Same as MS has its Metro bullshit. I dont like it usability wise but at least they are trying.

Ubuntu also supporting Wayland is for me a huge plus in my books and i really like to see them going on.

So instead of bashing them, support them. If you buy amazon stuff (and most of us are) then use their Interface (In a VM Maybe). They did good and they deserve some credit (dollar / euro / whatever).
