There is a new feature that feature pulls deals from Amazon when the search is being used, and money is earned for Ubuntu when users click on those results and start to buy on Amazon. Also, one of the main focuses of Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal is the integration of the desktop and the cloud like the Dash search feature that will pull up results not only from the local machine, but also from online sources such as Google Drive, Flickr, and Facebook and even music and video content on Amazon and Ubuntu One. Canonical also says that this will make Web applications act more like a desktop program and “gives the user a faster experience and reduces the proliferation of browser tabs and windows that can quickly make browsing unmanageable”.
