Apparently it's going to be [url="http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2012/09/is-an-off-switch-for-the-shopping-lens-in-the-works"]optional[/url] (as it should be). And is it just me, or are Ubuntu code names getting harder and harder to pronounce ? :s

In other news, Steam beta is arriving next week (woohoo!).

Annoying to be honest. Just a case in point, random screenshot from a VM. Pops up when it's not terribly appropriate. On a media search, maybe, but while I'm launching a program, not so much. At least it's an easy thing to nuke. Sure, they need to make money just like everybody else, but this is just badly implemented.

^ Yea, I can see the shopping addition having a good use if they implement it properly. It certainly shouldn't be on the home lens though.

I wouldn't mind seeing a button that says "show me shopping results" instead of it automatically processing. I don't like the idea that anything I type will be sent over the waves.

Yeah, personally I'd be for amazon integration if it was implemented well, but random irrelevant results clogging up the dash home is just lazy. They should restrict it to its own lense, or to just the music/video lenses or something.

There was an Amazon icon on the sidebar which took me to amazon.com when I installed it in vmware yesterday

Trying the beta now. Man I really like so many things about unity, but the performance still isn't there. The dash and alt tab switcher take like 5 seconds or more to even open on a cold boot, the dash is quite laggy (for example dragging an icon from dash to launcher). And these are issues I've had with unity since it was first released.

I've noticed that 2D is better on the machines I've tested it with. I'm not sure if 12.10 still supports 2D though as I haven't tried it out yet.

Use --force-wubi as a parameter when you run it and you'll get the option to install in its wubitized mode.

^^ Yea, I agree with the performance problems. Phoronix has some quick benchmarks on the performance regressions of Unity/Compiz http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=unity_66_performance&num=1

Though according to a couple of forum members over there, there will be several performance related bugs fixed in Unity 6.8 (shipping with Ubuntu 12.10). One of these is basically switching off the desktop composting when a full screen application is detected (good for games). Also, if bugs like this https://bugs.launchpad.net/compiz/+bug/1049214 get fixed, that will make a big difference in frame rate on Nvidia cards.

I've once again tried running the Live DVD, well, Live USB actually on my iMac. Like version 12.04 my wireless Apple Keyboard (bluetooth) won't lock on for any prolonged period of time. It connects, immediately disconnects again to moment I press a key. This a cycle which continues. I've tried it with my neigbours wireless Apple Keyboard (slightly older model than mine) and the same thing happens. The really odd part is my Magic Trackpad connects immediately and is ready for use. Same goes for my Magic Mouse I pulled out of mothballs. So obviously bluetooth is working just fine, just not in combination with my keyboard.

Does anyone have any thoughts what could be causing this? Maybe a setting I can try?

(A magic Terminal command perhaps? ;) )
