While I do understand the reasoning behind this 'feature' and I do think it would be good for Ubuntu, Linux and Open Source as a whole if more funding comes its way, the issues associated with the shopping lens are worrying me. Combine that with some unavoidable bugs in the new code and user disappointment is guaranteed.

Sorry for being sceptical and probably sarcastic, but I think that most users will find their quick and final solution in "sudo apt-get remove --purge unity-lens-shopping". I did it within minutes after upgrading to 12.10 beta2 last weekend.
