    Thread moved to Recurring Discussions.

    This has been discussed many times already.
    Please, people, remember to BACKUP before you install that new system. Same if you're upgrading.

    He's a kook...the amazon lens isn't spyware...and you can turn it off in the privacy settings in about 5 seconds...where it says "include online dash searches" switch it to off...done.
    It is just a little way for canonical to get some revenue to help support ubuntu development...Amazon doesn't see you or have access to your computer...it just makes little ad suggestions of items you might like when you type something in dash...The target ads on linux mint forums are more intrusive then the amazon lens but no one complains about those...

    The hypothetical spyware as reported by RMS has been posted and discussed more times than I can count.

    This, on the other hand, never fails to revolt and amuse:
