Re: How it should have been handled

I am OK with it, I always opt-in to this type of data collection .... why ? Because I know what they are gathering, precisely, shit, I can even amend the list of things they collect, simple hack -> compile -> done. Ubuntu not the only distro doing this, I think it is opt-in with the others, so, yeah, they should make it opt-in, I think.

The Amazon search bar story was different, there they were ^dwsending selling data to Amazon ...
