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



This will not affect me as I dislike the Ubuntu desktop and have chosen Mint. The principle does need examining as if successful, it may spread.

What Ubuntu are asking for now seems reasonable but the real issue here is trust. Canonical are a commercial organisation with their own financial motives. Should they be trusted any more than, say, Microsoft, Apple, or Google?
