Is Ubuntu Cheating Mozilla with Yahoo Search Deal?
Mozilla makes a good chunk of its revenues from a search deal with Google. So for all of you reading this blog on a Firefox web browser, Mozilla staffers that worked on this, were in part paid (indirectly) from that deal.
If you happen to be running Firefox on Ubuntu, that's going to change.
You see, Canonical the lead sponsor behind Ubuntu has struck it's own search deal with Yahoo. So Canonical will make money from Yahoo searches (really Microsoft now with Bing powering Yahoo search) to help fund their efforts.
So why is Canonical pulling this (boneheaded) move?
