THANK YOU Mr Shutlleworth
Thank you for putting the Amazon search in to 12.10. Oh and thank you for the fantastic update process. No, seriously, thank you very deeply. This was a fantastic idea.
Based on the fact that I didn't really want the Amazon feature and its creeping commercialisation of Ubuntu, I put a copy of Lubuntu on a pen drive to test. It seemed ok, but was I really ready to move away?
Well, this morning I decided to upgrade my 12.04 version to 12.10. It failed. It failed quite spectacularly and left me with "Grub load error - file not found... Grub> " Oh dear. No help. No commands to enter. Oh, and now no way to get to the Internet and check. Yes, you need to load a browser for that and that means loading an OS.
Oh well, in for a penny, lets install LUbuntu.
Oh, my. This is nice. It clean. No clutter. Fast. And it works the way I really want it to. It supports both my screens properly (Unity NEVER did that). This is what I want my computer to look like.
So, thank you once again. If you hadn't have put the Amazon thingy in to Unity and recreated Microsofts Active Desktop I would not have tried LUbuntu.
