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.

Why?

Bing isn't bad.


I, personally, get much more accurate results with Google than with Bing, and as the whole point of them is to return results for your queries it's a pretty big issue. That's the primary reason I use Google. Secondary reasons are that I'm used to Google, and I try to avoid Microsoft when there are reasonable alternatives, though that's not such a big issue.
