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 simply a matter of preference.

It work, we are mostly a Microsoft shop, but for web it's Firefox and Google.....

At home, its Ubuntu with both Firefox and Chrome with Google and Yahoo search engines

I'm not too terribly bothered by Canonical doing this change enough to start throwing furniture, as long as I'm not restricted on making a choice as who to use as a search engine. (I have limited choices in the workplace, that is not up to me but at home I do have those wonderful choices.)

Got to find my furniture polish.....
