Ubuntu 12.10 will include advertisements for products on Amazon. It will look like this – if you search, product suggestions will pop up. This seems like a rather slippery slope to me, and I certainly wouldn’t want this on my desktop, laptop, smartphone, tablet, or anywhere else. On the web – fine, I’m on your site, not mine – but my desktop is mine, and mine alone. Not that it matters – open source, someone will disable them. Biggest concern: does this mean my search queries get sent across the web?
