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?

Touch interfaces are worse than the mouse.
the dash/hud bring the autocompletion and universal launching of the terminal and programs like vim to the desktop.

I actually find it more keyboard friendly than ratpoison, because I can launch files and access menus via search, which is far faster than tabbing through menus or autocompleting a directory to access a file.

I'm basically in it for the keyboard, is what I'm saying.
