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.

Of course, wanting to use google products will cause google to increase the number and power of web applications, chromeOS allows web apps to use client hardware, if I recall correctly.


I was referring to the last paragraph in the article, and thinking more along the lines that if Google were to make it's employers eat their own dog food (e.g. using Chrome OS), then this might be somewhat difficult for their developers and probably not a necessary move.
