Maximum PC: "Last week, Canonical’s Director of Technology Olli Ries revealed on the ubuntu-devel mailing list that Ubuntu 12.10, scheduled for release in October, will include Amazon search results in the Unity Dash lens. Needless to say, the company will be getting a commission every time a search result leads to an actual sale.
Understandably, the announcement has angered many Ubuntu users, who see the feature as being a privacy and security concern. But Shuttleworth thinks otherwise. On Sunday, the Canonical head honcho wrote a lengthy post on his blog to address their concerns."
