Wednesday, December 12. 2012 Ubuntu is Tracking You: Disable connections to Canonical Ubuntu not only connects to Canonical servers on request, it does so permanently in the background. It even transmits geolocation information for the weather applet.
Posted by Nirab Pudasaini on 10 Dec 2012 This week witnessed another criticism of Ubuntu 's integration of online results in the Unity Dash, after accusation of 'violation of privacy' and 'data leak' by none other than EFF. This time Richard M Stallman, the founder of the free software movement and creator of GNU GPL, one of the most powerful licenses came out calling Ubuntu a spyware for their use of surveillance code for the Amazon Shopping Lens. The discussion took an unpleasant turn when Jono Bacon, the Ubuntu Community Manager, took to his personal blog defend Canonical. While he did not address any issues that Stallman or EFF raised he did say that the views of Stallman were FUD.
Free Software Foundation President Richard Stallman today called Ubuntu Linux "spyware" because the operating system sends data to Ubuntu maker Canonical when a user searches the desktop. But his complaint is already falling on deaf ears—Canonical said today that it plans to increase use of the feature Stallman objects to in order to deliver expanded Internet search results in the next version of Ubuntu. In Ubuntu 12.10, searching the Dash (the hub for finding stuff in the Unity desktop interface) for files and applications returns not only results from a user's desktop but also Amazon shopping results, as we reported in September before the operating system's release. If a user buys something from Amazon as a result, money is sent to Canonical in the form of affiliate payments. User complaints forced Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth to defend the move on his blog, but the Amazon shopping results were implemented in Ubuntu 12.10 as scheduled.
Today, Canonical has released version 12.10 of its Ubuntu Linux distribution, codenamed "Quantal Quetzal" after a ridiculously awesome-looking bird . Quantal represents the start of a new two-year development cycle and lays the groundwork for what Ubuntu will evolve into by 2014. As such, the release is focused on figuring out what users are primarily doing on the desktop and in the enterprise and putting the right tools in front of them to help. The release is right on schedule. Canonical follows a six month "tick-tock" cycle with Ubuntu, dropping new versions in April and October of every year.
I will start documenting about my experience using CouchDB to build a Document Management System (DMS), an important component of any Content Management System (CMS).
In the first part we installed CouchDB and explain how to create databases, documents, update them, create attachments and run queries.
