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.

Ubuntu changes its default search provider to make some money - yeah, where's the problem?

Canonical is a company that develops Ubuntu - it has a workforce they need paying etc this requires money.

I fail to see the problem we're geeks it will take 10 seconds to change the provider back to Google or a few more to install Chrome.

Further more if I can help Canonical by using Yahoo to click a few adds when I want to buy something I may well do.
