They should have changed their slogan from:

"Ubuntu - Linux for human beings!"

to:

"Ubuntu - Linux for the advertisers!"

Also, they are actually making their users' lives so much harder and less secure/safe/private. And last, but not least - they break Free/Libre software rules intentionally. They seem to transform to pure OSS model. They don't need human beings anymore - not in the process of deciding to whom this will go eventually. They need ad clickers and app buyers.

It's all actually pretty sad view.

Maybe it's you who don't understand what users want.

Really. What rule are those, exactly?

I'm sure meant to say something else because this would actually be a good thing.
