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.

And there is no idealistic reason not to use Bing. I mean, this is a market where Microsoft has had it's ass kicked, and it's not like you're feeding into the monopoly.

Microsoft is Microsoft. Using/supporting Bing still helps to fuel them as a company. If Bing was in no way a Microsoft product and a completely separate company, then maybe what you said would be partially true.
