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?

It is pretty hard to find hardware that will work with Windows 2000, for Windows XP the same will happen in a couple of years.

I see some people clinging to their Windows XP, they don't like Windows Vista, Windows 7 and especially not Windows 8.

I think their only long term option is to but Windows 7 now before you can't buy that anymore.
