2012-09-20 22:04:37 Dylan McCall description Open the dash and type "Adobe Reader". Today, The Highest Priority Result (assuming you do not have Adobe Reader installed) is Adobe Reader for Android on the Amazon app store. (See attached screenshot 1). Clicking the very appealing (and very large, thanks to bug #1053628) icon will open your web browser on this page: http://www.amazon.com/Adobe-Systems-Reader/dp/B004SD5GZ4%3FSubscriptionId%3D0JF9Y4YFAADGVXG0SE82%26tag%3Dchipaca-20%26linkCode%3Dxm2%26camp%3D2025%26creative%3D165953%26creativeASIN%3DB004SD5GZ4 It is easy to imagine a user now, in no particular order: - Attempting to "install" the software for their Ubuntu system, via Amazon's Android app store - Cursing our ugly and fragmented process for installing software - Being very, very confused and frustrated So, that's pretty bad. Here's another example: http://www.amazon.com/Adobe-65158237-Photoshop-CS6/dp/B007R0RKV8%3FSubscriptionId%3D0JF9Y4YFAADGVXG0SE82%26tag%3Dchipaca-20%26linkCode%3Dxm2%26camp%3D2025%26creative%3D165953%26creativeASIN%3DB007R0RKV8 Here, searching the dash for Photoshop results in some pieces of software, all of which cost lots of money. These are all for Windows, but by presenting these applications in the dash, under the header "Other suggestions," we seem to be recommending them. It's quite likely that a user will assume, here, that the software works in Ubuntu. Finally, I searched for Bastion. Bastion is available for Ubuntu, which is really exciting. However, when I search in the Home lens, the only suggestion is (again) Bastion for Windows, from Amazon. Suffice it to say, this is misleading and dangerous. Software should not appear in the search, and placing Amazon results in global search — especially while we do no such thing for software in Ubuntu's own repository — needs to be very carefully considered in terms of user experience.
