First was Unity, then came Amazon ads in the desktop, now we have Ubuntu Donationware:

Makes me glad Mint is around, and makes me think it could be in Mint's best interest to invest more in their LMDE versions. Such moves by Ubuntu seem desperate and make me seriously question Ubuntu's future. If they don't start making the kind of money they want, how long will they be around?
