The Google Kool-Aid

Shawn Powers's picture

I am a full blown Google evangelist. Their simple, "We're not evil" concept is really all I'm looking for in a company. Are their programs GPL? No. Are they friendly to the Linux community? Yes.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see everything Google offers to be open source and Linux native -- but just acknowledging the Linux community exists is significant in today's world.

So yes, I welcome our new googly overlords.
