I like basically everything about ubuntu, from Unity (yep, unity) to all the ppas that are available. Unfortunately, I just don't feel fine promoting the newer Ubuntu versions, that with the amazon "features". I don't really want to discuss in this thread why I don't like them, and I guess that most people already know what answer to expect.
Anyway, I am looking for a derivative of ubuntu that uses Unity and is basically the same as ubuntu except it does not have Shopping suggestions by default. As 13.04 comes near, it is really tempting to get all the new unity features, specially the fuzzy searching, it is VERY necessary.
If not, any one up to joining an initiative to make such thing?
I really love Unity. After starting to use it last year, and after you get used to it. And after you learn how to customize its theme (possible, but unnecessarily difficult) and of course, you also need to install Menu Libre. But once you do all that, I really think Unity is the best DE for me, or it was before the idea to fill it with "shopping suggestions".
