    I use DuckDuckGo, for other things too, but not all the time.
    No I haven't used it, I've never heard of it before. Is it anything like DDG? It's my understanding that DDG doesn't track your visits and where you go like Google is accused of doing?
    I don't really care because I don't go places that I would want to hide but I don't like the idea of being targeted for spam.

    I just checked out googleubuntu.com and it looks pretty amazing. I really like the idea of most all of your favourite Ubuntu flavors in one package, (well, search engine anyhow) that's cool.

    Thanks for the introduction.

    I am afraid http://www.googlubuntu.com/ will be tracking us while using it, but I am not sure.

    I understand the desire to remain free of being tracked and recorded by Google and sorely miss Sgroogle, for Google searches without being tracked for general web-browsing.

    For me, if I do use Googlubuntu to search for a term, like for example "fstab", I don't really care if they keep records of my 'buntu searches. But, each of us have to decide for ourselves, what we are comfortable with.

    I was wondering why the "Other OS" category was all the way down to the bottom of the forums. Looking forward to the changes, they are well needed and will make the front of the forums much more easier to navigate around to find the correct place for a topic.

    The berries were almost behaving themselves. Changes are all done now.

    We're open to comments if there are some constructive ideas out there - but we will not be making wholesale changes to the order we have now.

    The new look is quite nice.
    My one thought is looking at it, I noticed the subcategory Placeholder in the community discussions area. What is that? Is it new, or was it something I never paid attention to.

    Why should a section about other os be front and center in a forum dedicated to Ubuntu? Most other os' have their own forums.
