Google working on desktop linux

Google is preparing its own distribution of Linux for the desktop, in a possible bid to take on Microsoft in its core business - desktop software.

A version of the increasingly popular Ubuntu desktop Linux distribution, based on Debian and the Gnome desktop, it is known internally as 'Goobuntu'.


  1. Yeah its true. But It's just using it for its desktoppurpose at googleplex mountain view! It will the best competetor for microsoft. But there are even chances that it amy not work out coz its a different kinda business. Microsoft was in this field since two decades. Vista is gonna come out this year end. The features are amazing. Just check out various reviews at there are even some viseos about the riviews on various eye candy features..

  2. yeah agreed but i think its time we neeed a change with the windows thing 20 years a long time... and linux is looking up to compete

  4. Yeah even I see the revolution! Dude just try your hands on Ubuntu it’s pretty awesome. Get em from order for some pressed Cd’s. It’s absolutely free. If you can wait until 20th April, Ubuntu Dapper Drake will be out! It’s really rock solid when it comes to stability. Its core is made out of Debian the real Gnu/Linux.

    Yeah you are right we can't predict what’s going on inside googleplex. They are really good at Linux. All there data centers run on their own Linux variants. They have highly scalable file system called GFS based on ext3. If they really wish to come out wid some hot new OS it’s going to be rocking! Even I wish the same.
    Happy Hacking,
