Why again does Windows cost money when a more secure more advanced OS is free?

Really? Removed GNOME? WTF? Why?
Plenty of people can't stand Unity (myself included). Anyone knows of a good/valid reason why this OPTION was removed?

Crazy right? I think I'm going to try ubuntu-gnome and see how that works.

Does it still give search results to amazon and places Ads when you search? No thanks, I'll stick to my Arch

Rather than focusing on the look of the OS, like or Hate Unity.... What id like to see ubuntu do is create a better/simpler crossover method from those looking to escape MS and iOS.
I use ubuntu everyday, and I do love it, but driver support is hit or miss. Yes, most of it can fixed, but usually only under the hands of someone who knows how to use terminal, and the inner workings... NOT EVER going to happen with a basic "home user"
How many times have you changed one thing in linux to literally break another part of it?

Well, this will not be the case for much longer. Instead of charging you for the OS, canonical wants to integrate ads directly to your dashbar. I would rather pay for an OS and not get tracked (for ad purposes) than to have all of my habits sold to ruthless advertisers.

I really hope that other linux distros don't follow this model. It seem to go against the FOSS philosophy.

I agree to a whole here- If it came down to it, id MUCH rather pay for an OS to maintain privacy than deal with targeted advertising, and other data collection.
