    "Simple Uninstaller - Remove Ubuntu easily"

    I game across a google ad for this site & program: http://simpleuninstaller.com

    What stuck me was that it offered to uninstall Ubuntu. Odd. I doubt it would do the partitioning and everything, it probably only uninstalls wubi.

    But for Ubuntu to be actually listed? I wondered if it was such a popular item... so I did some research.

    Going to the Google Keyword Tool (click), I searched for "ubuntu". The word "uninstall" didn't even come up in the list that practically covers everything. Same for vice-versa.

    Very strange I thought, and checked out Google Trends. But that doesn't show much confirmation either (click).

    So, oddly enough (and probably happily), apparently uninstalling Ubuntu isn't such a popular item... I suspect they just used a bunch of keywords of the most popular programs for SEO optimization.

    Just a heads up to anyone who runs into this

    I went to that page.

    Frankly, I don't trust any page that

    1) I found in a Google Adsense ad, and
    2) is formatted so that every hyperlink directs to a download.
