Re: Ubuntu wins Canonical a "Big Brother Award"
I just laugh. The Unity search was useful and desirable until OMG SOMEBODY IS MAKING MONEY FROM LINUX!!!1!!
Video sites getting our search queries? Who cares? But only when it's Amazon and money changes hands, that's when it becomes totally a breach of privacy.
I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
