So, if you’re wondering yourself: “Why, Ubuntu is in the process of making everything quite a bit more annoying and fucking things up”, yet still think “that might just be misjudged opinion”, then fret no more. There’s an easy way to now know that Canonical has officially gone bonkers.
After installing an annoying App Market-like “Software center” by default, switching users over to a IM client that’s only remotely usable, trying to sell you a cloud-based storage solution and switching to Yahoo as the default search engine, you really have to wonder what the guys responsible are up to.
In short, Canonical is on the verge of going Apple. Just bail boat while you still can.
