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 a load of rubbish.

You can choose to have the adverts displayed or not, you can choose to have searches displayed or not. If you really don't like even disabling it ... you can use the myriad of ubuntu spin-offs like mint which are actively supported.

Don't make something into a moral crusade when it isn't. There are far worse things happening in the world, and Ubuntu putting a Kindle like experience into their OS isn't one of them.

Like I said. Some see no harm, others, like me, see a disturbing trend to a pervasive invasion of personal life down to the core levels of everything we use, just to serve business interests.

Speaking up after the fact is a losing strategy. Ignoring is fine when there still is choice, it becomes impossible if choice is gone.

Glean what you will from it.
