We talked yesterday
the dubious distinction-in every way-they received last weekend by Mark Shuttleworth and Ubuntu function online searches Dash , and the news has uncovered a fact: the criticisms, concerns or whatever you call it, also exist within the Ubuntu community (the French community, in this case).
a comment on OMG! Ubuntu! One of our readers has been brought to here, is displayed and asks for help to improve Privacy Dash Interface , neither more nor less than what the detractors of the implementation of this feature ask: to be informed and given the option a priori , not afterwards and incomplete.
As we read (and see in the header image), Dash Privacy Interface-whose development, it seems, comes from long- a popup window that the user jumps when first enters on the desktop, which is given the option to choose whether to use the online search or only local besides properly inform about either. For example, in the case of using the online search, the user should be aware that accept:
- That Canonical collect their search terms and IP address.
- That Canonical share this information with third parties (if applicable).
as simple as that. And no one should be shocked, because any current search provider does the same thing.
Now this solution, obviously perfect, does not solve the problem of Ubuntu , it is intended, so they do know-local communities Ubuntu, in order to be implemented in Setup your own images. And not because the Privacy Dash Interface developers do not want to but because at Canonical do not. Big mistake, we expect to see solved in the future.
Caesar’s wife must not only be honest, it must also appear so, say Julius Caesar said when he divorced one of his wives. Same for Ubuntu, that even though some people difficult to accept, is the image of GNU / Linux for the new user on the system. Therefore, this is a criticism that will maintain many until they change their policy, although some fanboys only see an attack on it (but do not worry, we will not give more slack to this topic a while, until you have something good to tell or remember the circumstances oblige).
