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.

Bing doesn't give me anything new and it isn't better than Google so why switch ?

Better privacy policy, especially if used through Yahoo (MS is bound to Yahoo's privacy policy). Using Yahoo through Forestle http://www.forestle.org/ even saves the rain forest. Can't get this with Google.
