Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu For the longest time, the default search provider in Ubuntu Linux has been Google, but this is going to change in the next release, Lucid Lynx, scheduled to release April 29. The change comes after Canonical has signed a revenue sharing deal with Yahoo!, so you can imagine who the new default search provider will be.

I think you're forgetting the word "yet" somewhere there. Once Chrome stabilizes a bit more, why wouldn't it be pulled into the standard Ubuntu repo? And once that happens why wouldn't they set Yahoo as default?

Because Chrome can't be included in Ubuntu's repositories, not even the partner ones, due to the h264 license. Only Google may distribute it.
