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.

what is an ide ? integrated development environment (IDE)

So in your definition a text editor and compiler == integrated development environment ??

They are development tools yes, but an IDE ?

The company policy is Linux / Mac, where does chromeOS come into this ? Also just fyi , ChromeOS is based off of Linux, how difficult do you think it would be for them to build a developers build of chrome for internal development ? Wow seriously I am not sure who to give the dumb ass of the year award to now


I have been thinking about your dilemma, and the dumb ass award of the year definitely belongs to you ;)

No No .. You and the other guy both get to stand up and share it seriously.. ;)

How can you even think that there is no good development tools on Linux / Mac , Seriously ? Have you ever used Linux ? The whole OS can be turned into one massive integrated development environment if you want it to be.

Did you make that comment as a joke or were you serious and just didn't know any better ?

I don't actually recall saying there was no good development tools on Linux / Mac.

Yes I have used GNU/Linux.

Did you even read the article and my original comment?
