If you like Ubuntu and don't like the Bong [sic] deal, then wait for a derivative
like Linux Mint to come out (corresponding to same version). Put your bytes where
it suits your voice. Or your wallet, however the saying goes...

If Ubuntu sees people turning to Mint because of the search deal, they might
retreat from it.
