So basically I have noticed that my dash in Ubuntu 12.10 was full of adware. At first this didn't bother me but then I realised that I support the free and open source community and any ad-supported OS is a 100% complete violation of this.
My question is how do I disable this awful invasion of privacy and security?
I mean... Canonical surely aren't stupid enough to suddenly destroy Ubuntu, right?
It's not difficult to vote with our feet when it comes to Linux so why damage your reputation this much and embed all of this adware/spyware in Ubuntu?
If there is a simple way to disable 12.10's hideous adware and spyware i want to hear it.
In reality the solution should be stickied on the forums but i searched the forums and found no reference to 12.10's adware.
Maybe this means this topic will be deleted because it is seen as Ubuntu bashing and others like it have been deleted too because it seems that this awful new direction the Canonincal/Ubuntu team are going is hardly a secret and any user and supporter of the free and open software community will just simply ditch an operating system that becomes an ad-supported OS.
