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.

The way they go about getting money now is sleazy. They better drum up some legitimate business or slip further into irrelevance.

I criticize because I still care. Once I go quiet, it is Canonical who?

One more thing:
But it is a common practice those days to earn your money by advertisements.

Yeah, that everybody is doing it (or trying to), doesn't make it an ok thing to do.

Why not?

You are free to ignore it.

"Slip further into irrelevance"? One decent set of stats shows Ubuntu to be the only desktop Linux that really grows: http://stats.wikimedia.org/archive/squid_reports/2012-10/SquidRepor... (vs a year ago http://stats.wikimedia.org/archive/squid_reports/2011-10/SquidRepor... - all other notable desktop distros decreased in the same period)

Once you go quiet, hardly anybody will notice; Ubuntu will likely continue its rise.
