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?

to some but running a business like Canonical and to sponsor a project like Ubuntu COSTS MONEY.
Don't like it? Uninstall the lens or use a different distro. There's choice, ya know.

So a Linux user finally admits that there is no money to be made from a desktop distribution?
