I'm not an ubuntu defender but honestly, aren't a couple Amazon ads better (or let's call it less bad) than all the crapware OP talks about?

We are talking 1 command against hours of fight against a whole system.

Yes, certainly. I dimly remember HP as being a particularly cruddy install.

The Amazon search in Unity home lens (where you go to launch programs &c) is attempting to be a dynamic search so that results narrow as you type. Network latency means it sort of 'jumps' in groups of letters. Sometimes results corresponding to part of the words you type appear. This can produce 'interesting' results.


I think I'd rather stay with crapware.

Companies, I don't care about your offers. When I will want to buy something, I'll Google myself a better deal.

Damn, it's just so wrong...
