Excellent bug report on launchpad

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-terminal/+bug/1055766
Given the new improved search results you get in Ubuntu 12.10 why not include them in the terminal Cheesy
e.g.
Quote
grep -R shark_t /home/noob/fish_game/*
/home/noob/fish_game/fish.h: struct shark_t {
/home/noob/fish_game/fish.c: struct shark_t_t mark_sw;
I declare this a bug for two reasons:
1. The output is boring.
2. The terminal has more than 2 lines!!! It's an unefficient use of my screenspace.
I believe the reason for this is that the grep command only searches locally for things I am actually looking for, I kind of expect the results I get from my codebase and as such it removes any sense of mystery or something new and exciting to spice up my dull geek existence. That's boring, grep -R should also search amazon, so I get more exciting results such as:
Shark Season 1 Starring Steven Eckholdt, Nora Dunn, Patrick Fabian, et al.
Amazon Instant Video
to buy episodes: $1.99
to buy season: $34.99 ($1.59 per episode)
Watch instantly on your PC, Mac, compatible TV or device.

Glad I no longer use Ubuntu.

I hope that bug report is a joke. If not the author may need educating on The UNIX way.

It IS a joke, users are not happy about the "free" ads from Amazon they are getting when they use the DESKTOP search. (in 12.10beta)
