Apparently it's going to be optional (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!).

I stopped using the code names a while ago,..... I just use the numbers

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.
