Default Canonical wants ubuntu to collect your personal data

Because open sourcers love sharing their data

Canonical is planning to make a change to Ubuntu which would mean that the Linux distro would collect information (or telemetry data) on desktop PCs during installation and afterwards.

This has gone down like a bucket of cold sick with Linux users. After all, this is the sort of thing that Microsoft does and is precisely the sort of thing that they hate about windows 10.
