Google "I had a course on distributed system in my Engineering curriculum, and I was really fascinated with the way people use this technology for work. As my interest grew in this field, I started to read a lot on this. As a result, while browsing a few pages, I found a link to Google File System. Honestly, it didn't make any sense to me. Where would Google deploy this proprietary file system? Or is Google planning to have an operating system? I decided to have a look at it nonetheless and here's a quick overview of my findings."

From the blurb quoted by Thom, taken from the first paragraph of the article, emphasis by me:

" Honestly, it didnít make any sense to me. Where would Google deploy this proprietary file system? Or is Google planning to have an operating system?"

As you can see, speculation about a GoogleOS is in the first paragraph... or did you not read the article? ;P
