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.

Having the Ubuntu distro earn money is great for long-term sustainability of the project. I'm glad they decided to go this way (allowing user to switch from the default) instead of doing something more destructive like ads or forcing the search box to be yahoo all the time.
