Option to enable/disable commercial suggestions in Ubuntu 12.10's Unity to land after Quantal BETA 2
Adopting Amazon in Unity 6.6 (in Ubuntu 12.10) triggered various complains and concerns across the internets, mainly related to Amazon-specific results appearing on Dash home after typing words in the search area.
Shortly, various Ubuntu developers have step-by-step explained the decision behind the Amazon's landing, and, the developers have started the work on implementing a clickable user-friendly manner of disabling/enabling commercial results (touching all of Unity, not limited to Dash's home).
Ubuntu's Didier Roche has published the conclusion on the in-progress work, aimed at (by default) landing in the next days/weeks of the mentioned enable/disable area.
"After long discussions between design, release team, translators and the documentation team, we finally got the Feature and UI Freeze Exception for getting the additional option to disable ubuntu partner search results on the dash. It's now implemented and merged in the various trunks: libunity, unity-lens-shopping, unity-lens-music and unity-lens-video".
"All of this will hit Quantal shortly after beta2!"
