I'm using 12.04 LTS, partially because it's stable and I need my machine to be stable and reliable. I also don't wont to switch to newer versions of Ubuntu because of shopping lenses. If I decide to install newer version of Linux I'll go for Linux Mint Debian Edition. I know that this lenses can be disabled or completely removed, but it makes me frustrated. Linux was once famous for speed, stability and security, now Canonical drives Ubuntu off that course. I also understand that these lenses can be useful to someone, but at least ask us (users) about that on first start-up. Or even better disable it by default.
Also, even if I want to keep that feature, I don't want them all in one. I mean, if I want to search my local files I don't want to search the internet at the same time. I know this can also be tweaked, but why not make it default?
I also decided not to support Ubuntu Edge because of this.
So, may question is : Will Canonical disable Amazon (and similar) lenses by default in some future releases?
This question is also appeal for Canonical, please hear your users!
Please make it configurable as possible. Make detailed options for what is searched by default when I press Super (is it local files, apps, amazon, facebook etc or some combination of them).
Then it would be really great.
(Sorry for that proposal at the end, I don't know how to address to Canonical other way.)
