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.

It's hardly good supporting a company such as Yahoo, who have very little or no FOSS contribution.

I think Canonical should think about FOSS and pick more wisely, rather than think about the money no matter who it is.

I see Canonical getting pain for this, just like Novell siding with Microsoft.
