Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Ubuntu 12.10 will include advertisements for products on Amazon. It will look like this - if you search, product suggestions will pop up. This seems like a rather slippery slope to me, and I certainly wouldn't want this on my desktop, laptop, smartphone, tablet, or anywhere else. On the web - fine, I'm on your site, not mine - but my desktop is mine, and mine alone. Not that it matters - open source, someone will disable them. Biggest concern: does this mean my search queries get sent across the web?

This is a good start. But Windows laptops are still ahead. Maybe next release they can install some shortcuts to Ebay, and install some trial versions of McAffee Total Awesome Complete Protection 2012Elite.

Only then will Linux catch up to desktop Windows.

Those are pre-installed by PC vendors, not by Microsoft.

Try harder next time.
