Do You Trust Ubuntu?

Ubuntu continues its downward spin as it continues to disregard and even offend its users. The latest is the integration of Amazon search queries by default in the Unity Dash. Disregarding objections from users, Ubuntu is not backing down. Like it or not the overlord Mark Shuttleworth has spoken.

Bad as what may be, his response to the community was worse. Mark Shuttleworth words were, “Don’t trust us? Erm, we have root. You do trust us with your data already. You trust us not to screw up on your machine with every update. You trust Debian, and you trust a large swathe of the open source community. And most importantly, you trust us to address it when, being human, we err.”

Well actually, I beginning to not trust you Mark Shuttleworth. You continue to ignore the community. You continue to drive Ubuntu were you want it. Sorry Mark, but you are killing Ubuntu. I left and many more are going to leave. And you know what, it’s a shame. Ubuntu 10.04 was my favorite operating system. Now I am searching for something close.
