Ubuntu Moves To Yahoo For Default Firefox Search

An anonymous reader writes “Starting in Ubuntu’s Lucid Lynx release, Firefox’s default search engine will be switched from Google to Yahoo. The switch was made after Canonical ‘negotiated a revenue sharing deal with Yahoo.’ Google will still be available as a choice. Since Yahoo search is now powered by Microsoft’s Bing, this would seem to mean that Microsoft will be paying people for using Ubuntu.”
