Why do we need a special Ubuntu homepage anyway? The first thing I do
when creating an account is changing my homepage to This
practice mades me think of Internet Explorer defaulting to -
well, much less ugly since our page is not full of ads and is using a
"real" search engine.

Wouldn't it be better to provide a page with help and informations about
Ubuntu and some links like: "Set your homepage to"/"to"/"to a custom page" ?
We should keep in mind that people install an OS not to think about this
OS but to work or surf; let's not be intrusive but help them to find
easily what they want.

What do you think?
