Ο Richard Stallman, president of the Free Software Foundation, said the "operating system Ubuntu Linux is Spyware ”because it sends data to Canonical servers.
“Ubuntu, a widely used GNU / Linux distribution, but has a tracking code. When a user searches their local files using the Ubuntu desktop, Ubuntu sends this alphanumeric to one of Canonical's servers. (Canonical is the developer of Ubuntu.) "Stallman said on his blog.
According to his blog, Ubuntu sends the search keyword from Dash to Amazon (the hub for finding the Unity desktop interface). Based on the keywords that you've sent, you'll see ads to buy things from Amazon. When someone now buys something from Amazon, Canonical will receive its commission, says ehackingnews.
