Ubuntu wants to slurp PCs' vital statistics – even location – with new desktop installs

Location, Location, Location.

Apart from that, the rest seems fairly innocuous and centred around improving hardware compatibility. And the location is based on location the user picks on install, it's not collecting it via any kind of constant tracking as far as I know.

It's more a registration/feedback on what it's been installed on and where in the world etc.

It does it once, and then it's over.

Far as I can see, it's nowhere the same league as any OS that keeps monitoring, changes and resets setting on update etc.
