The linux search specifically looks for the "defined search term" in or with Linux related sites.

So if you did a search on ATi on and then on will return different results.

googling comments

2 comments to improve ur googling
if you want to google search in only a specific site, say and you are looking for "windows sucks"
you type in "windows sucks" it will only search the site

also, for instance if you want to search for windows(as in windows for a house) you can search for "windows -microsoft"
the minus sign takes away any search results that have anything to do with microsoft
the same works with the plus sign if you want to add something to your search, so for instance "windows +construction"
