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


What's the fuss?

So by 'location' what it actually means is 'time zone' and 'language' which is about as detailed as it gets at install time. The rest is just standard stuff a developer would like to know, nothing personally identifying.

Save this level of paranoia for stuff like Google Maps.
