Well considering the tone I used, Frankly, I'm surprised you even

I want my system here to be pure and free. No blogcruft.

Remember how XP and Vista would always come with Windows Messenger?
It's the same philosophical issue.

It integrates social networking too closely, and it makes me wanna
go into FUD mode. I'm scared here.

I'm worried to be stuck with a LTS desktop for 4 years with an
experiment that should be done in the _NEXT_ 6mos, in a non-LTS.

I appreciate it Mr. Shuttleworth. Our Linux communities are one of
the brighter beacons of efficient development out there.

Keep up the steamrolling Ubunteros.

Well, a little constructive paranoia is a good thing, to keep everyone
aware of the risks of abuse. We do have a big responsibility to keep
moving forward, even though there is no certainty about what the future
looks like, and that involves some risk.

The best way I think you can help, is to try the new bits out, and give
good feedback in a way that helps people understand what you really
mean, and how best to balance that with everyone else's feedback too.

All the best,
