    On the Evolution of Ubuntu

    I’m setting IPv6 aside for a moment to comment on Ubuntu 12.10.  Thanks.

    Ubuntu 12.10, which is scheduled to be released later this month, is adding a feature that seems to have some fellow ‘nixers up in arms.  The Dash search bar which allows you to find pretty much anything on your computer is adding on-line search results to what you type.  The results are slated to come from Amazon.com (for starters).  To many people this smacks of commercialization and a sell-out by Canonical, the developer of Ubuntu.  While I can see their point, people who love Linux (Ubuntu in particular) need to realize that times are a-changin’.
