Privacy a Concern? Fix Ubuntu!

This was brought to my attention in 2012 when Ubuntu 12.10 was released. Many people were complaining about the unity lenses and their far reaching affects(the inclusion of online shopping results in searches and online search “feature”). Since then we have had the PRISM debacle as well as many other highly publicized stories regarding our privacy and freedom. Recently a friend turned me on to a website that simply provided a script that would disable the “Big Brother” portions of Ubuntu. Pretty nifty idea if I say so myself.  The website by Micah Lee is called “Fix Ubuntu” and is available here. If you are to lazy to click the link provided, below is a copy of the bash script. Enjoy!
