Google The Register is reporting that Google has been working on its own Linux distro, apparently known internally as "Goobuntu." It's not clear whether this distro will be released publically or remain an internal platform, but it certainly is no surprise given Ubuntu's near ubiquitous status as of late and the ever-present reports and predictions.

The only thing that would make it interesting would be if the Google branded version included all the proprietary non-free stuff that gives new Linux users fits when diving into Ubuntu. If it includes all that, and it's both free (as in beer) and legal in the US and other major countries, then I can see some potential, especially if Linux ports of Google Earth were released at the same time and also pre-installed.
