Removing the adware that ships with stock Ubuntu 12.10

This is here more as a reference for me and anyone else that sees the annoying ads that appear in the launch page on recent ubuntu versions.

sudo apt-get remove unity-lens-shopping

The fact that this needs to be done on every new install of Ubuntu is a catastrophic fail, and canonical should be deeply ashamed of themselves for causing this embarrassment to Linux advocacy.

ubuntu clean install adware
