    Ubuntu has been criticized in the past for including Amazon web app and online search by default in the past. But it has not deterred Canonical from taking another controversial decision.

    Ubuntu 18.04 will be collecting some system usage data unless you choose to opt out of it.

    Here’s the kind of data Ubuntu 18.04 will be collecting:

    Version and flavor of Ubuntu you’re installing
    Whether you have network connectivity at install time
    Hardware statistics such as CPU, RAM, GPU, etc
    Device manufacturer
    Your country
    Time taken to complete the installation
    Whether you choose auto login, installing third-party codecs, downloading updates during install
    Disk layout
    Ubuntu Popcorn service will track the popularity of applications and packages
    Crash reports

    The result of the data thus collected will be available to the public for analytical purposes.
