This is a deal breaker for me, I love Ubuntu but when it becomes too commercialized for its own good and starts spying on its users I can no longer run it with pride. I've switched my desktop over to Linux Mint which has no such privacy concerns. If you think this is a good move, think again, you're damaging the trust you've gained among users and opening up a privacy/legal can of worms that will just lead to bad PR and negative comments. The way this is implemented really shows that Canonical cares more about money than providing a clean desktop, if they wanted a clean desktop they would put this in its own section or get rid of it altogether/make it opt-in because I doubt most people would want it.
