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.

As long as they don't override user preferences, defaulting to Yahoo or even Bing doesn't particularly bother me...

Just wait for the Ubuntu spinoff distro that does nothing more than change the default search engine back, hahah.

Exactly right man! Ubuntu may be bought off but they won't pay me off.
