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.

What's even more amazing is the sheer number of butthurt complainers that come out every time there's a Ubuntu news item.
We get it, you don't use it. Now grow up and move on.
Or maybe....
Here's an idea; how about I whine and complain in every RH/CentOS/Suse/whatever item about how much I think they suck? That would be fun, wouldn't it?

I have to agree. I don't like Unity, I don't like the shopping lens, but do I spend my time going around bashing Ubuntu? Nope, I don't. Why not? Because I realize that they're still trying to be the Joe Blow - friendly distro, they're trying to be a complete experience instead of just yet-another randomly-hashed collection of F/OSS software, and they are willing to try things others seemingly aren't.

Yes, Canonical is a corporation and quite obviously there's the wish that they could turn out profit from their operation. But that in and of itself doesn't necessarily mean Ubuntu is a bad product or that they're out only for our money; what most of the whiners seem to be completely oblivious to is the fact that for many Joe Blows things like the one mentioned here in the title are actually welcome -- it doesn't matter what you, the niche group, think as you're already technically capable enough to remove the things you don't like!

Yes, many FOOS users seem to think software developers don't have to pay for their stuff.
