Ubuntu 12.10 and Amazon suggestions

Submitted by Nikolaus Polak on Fri, 10/05/2012 - 09:52

During the first two beta releases of Ubuntu 12.10 there was a lot of excitement, as the main lens of Unity suddenly showed not only your installed programs and files, there were also Amazon search results. Mark Shuttleworth answered within hours , but some people didn't understand it completely, they thought there will be no easy way to deactivate this new feature.

Think again - Ubuntu Linux was always on the open source way. A bug tracker entry was created, patches sent, tested - the result: under system settings/privacy there is a big "on/off" switch to enable/disable any online results in the lense, a perfect solution in my opinion :-)

I don't know any "non-Linux" OS manufacturer, who reacts so fast to the needs of beta testers...
