Default Google discontinues specialised Linux and BSD search pages

From http://www.h-online.com/open/news/it...s-1257275.html

Quote:
Google has discontinued its specialised Linux and BSD search pages. The services at google.com/linux and google.com/bsd offered search which was limited to a specific topic by searching only relevant web sites, message boards, blogs and other hand-selected sources of information. Users are instead now redirected to google.com/webhp, a standard search page.

That's kind of annoying.. considering their late obsession with pollution the front page with annoying javascript crap.

That's easily fixed:
1. Disable Javascript;
OR
2. Bypass the home page and do searches using URL rewriting when the browser supports it.

1. I'm fully aware of that, however, other Google sites tend to legitimately rely on Javascript being enabled.. things break otherwise.

2. Google is my home page, so, no.

The reasoning behind it is to just use the FreeBSD keyword and you'll get the same, or nearly the same, results.
