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.

RE[2]: All who bash Ubuntu...

Even if some computer users, to stupid to know better, go ooh and aah over an advertisement capable of launching program

Oh praise be God, you're here to save me from the evils of Ubuntu. WTF?

A "start menu" is not a webshop.

Why not? Because you say so? What does it matter?

(where are the dedicated Ubuntu branded phones, tablets and laptops?)

So re-branding existing hardware and selling that, probably with a markup, is ok....

Promoting brainrot by allowing people to stop thinking is not innovation, it is insanity.

Exactly how does being able to purchase things you want from the start menu equals brain rot?
Would it be ok Ubuntu sold only their own hardware in the start menu?
