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.

MS -IE, the widest spread combo, comes with Bing as the default - but what does the world and dog use? Google. The hurdle for change here is so loooow, it is not worth any paper or thought to be wasted on. Ups! I plead guilty ! ;)
