Does Ubuntu 12.10 have integration with Amazon?

I refer to shopping suggestions from Amazon will be plonked into desktop search results, shown when users attempt to find stuff on their computers and the local network.

Please elaborate your question, Amazon provides a very long range of services. Are you asking whether you can search books from the ubuntu 12.10? If it is able run in their cloud environment? – zpon Oct 18 '12 at 10:39

Yes. 12.10 will have integration with Amazon. If you don't like it and you want to remove it, see here how: How can I remove Amazon search results from the dash?

Yes, thanks. Another options are to return back to Debian or to look for an alternative like Arch Linux. – Marc Oct 19 '12 at 17:58
