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.

that will do. I don't get it, you sleep with Google to make a baby (Chrome OS), then jump in bed with Yahoo? It's all good till someone's feelings get hurt, then the stuff hits the fan. Is this really the way to raise revenues, I mean why not take Microsoft's "interoperability deal", with Novel? Their revenue went threw the roof! They, and SUSE, are swimming in fans. Even if it is "easily changed with a click or two", the default is what it is, will someone new figure it out. It's all based on appearance's , I know, but nobody cared what the reality was when the Microsoft deal went down.

Sigh, which comes out first, Chrome Os, or Lucid?

Whoopsie, just received a reply from Rick Spencer, and I was dead wrong, as usual. Seems it's just the drop down box, been so long since I used Firefox :[
When you're wrong , promptly admit it. My bad. There's nothing to what I said about Google being miffed either, pure speculation on my part. Which is why he is where he is in life, and I'm living in my mom's basement, unemployed, drinking coffee, smoking cigarette's and watching Captain Kangaroo reruns....
