I love the concept of Startpage and their message, but like you said the search results leave a lot to be desired

When ixquick (parent company of startpage) make a kickass linux-based mobile OS, awesome web-based email, full-featured calendar, and adequate RSS reader I'll switch to them.  Until then, I'll stay with Google.  They are kinda sucking at the "Don't be evil" thing lately though.

The "don't be evil" thing is a twisted joke. Google was started by the CIA for the purpose of collecting personal information about EVERYONE to be used against them.

[...]  linux-based  [...]

They considered basing it on MINIX or NetBSD instead, but they went with commie-licensed Loonix purely for popularity and marketing reasons...  :cry:
