"I feel a change in the winds says I"
What are your thoughts?
I doubt that Google's popularity will in any way affect Linux. Yes, it runs on Linux. And yes, it has a Linux engine (I only know of one, www.google.com/linux. What other one?). However, 99% of the people who use Google use it for searching. Nothing more, nothing less. Okay, maybe a bit of GMail. But that still affects nothing.
Again: Linux's minority is based on the difficulty of transition (after being raised on Windows), as well as a general ignorance. I don't know what server software Yahoo! uses. And even if Yahoo! was the #1 search engine, I wouldn't change because of whatever it uses.
I'm glad that Google is taking over, because it's showing that a free service can be good. I also like their sense of humor and what seems to be a very good community. But I doubt they will influence the OS market at all.
