39433967 submission Submission + - Electronic Frontier Foundation Demands Ubuntu To Disable Online Search (muktware.com) Submitted by sfcrazy on Tuesday October 30, 2012 @03:39PM sfcrazy writes: Ubuntu 12.10 met with some controversy before and after it's launch. Initially it was about the inclusion of Amazon Ads and privacy in the latest edition of Ubuntu. Now, EFF, Electronic Frontier Foundation, has also raised concern around data leak and Amazon ads. EFF demands that Ubuntu should Disable "Include online search results" by default. Users should be able to install Ubuntu and immediately start using it without having to worry about leaking search queries or sending potentially private information to third party companies. Since many users might find this feature useful, consider displaying a dialog the first time a user logs in that asks if they would like to opt-in.
