Google Google employees have always had a remarkable amount of freedom when it comes to what operating system they wanted to run on company computers - Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, it was all fine. Since the China attacks, however, this has changed: Windows is no longer welcome on Google computers.

"Google uses Ubuntu extensively; there are excellent coding tools in Ubuntu.


Actually no there isn't.

As of 6months ago, much of Android development required a version of Eclipse that's more recent than the latest copy in Ubuntu's software repositories.

This meant that Ubuntu users had to manually download and install Eclipse - ie configure their coding tools from sources outside of Canonical's distros.

Wow, Ubuntu users having to do what all other people on all other OS's have to do. Install apps manually. Man Ubuntu sucks. LOL!

You've missed the point of my post if that's all you've taken from it.
