Default behavior of Ubuntu's primary interface is to try to sell me things
I'm so furious that I've been mentioning to people for years that I prefer Ubuntu, and that they might, as a result, think that I condone this....
I just installed Quantal in a virtual machine, ran Unity just long enough to switch back to the Gnome Classic UI. As I was trying to pull up the package manager, I typed in "packages", and got a screen full of CDs to buy.
I'm told that removing the unity-lens-shopping package fixes this. In my very strong opinion, this package needs to not be installed by default.
I've never seriously considered giving up on Ubuntu before, but this is so far from okay.
