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.

You forget that this is not Canonical helping users. This is Canonical trying to make "consumerism" a daily part of the operating system, in the hope to get their fingers into the wallets of impulsive folks.

They could opt to do some real business, but wedging themselves as an unnecessary middle man between people and real online shops is easier.
