The Linux kernel maintainer and hacker (right, Pd mov cx [int 21]) now works for Google, for full time and still hacks the kernel.

As Google maintains their own kernel variant for internal use, their interests are largely decoupled from what happens in the kernel.

There we have it, Google has its own Linux

"We are pleased to confirm that Andrew Morton has joined Google as a member of our Linux development team. Andrew joins Google from the OSDL and has an unparalleled background in Linux and open source development. Andrew will continue his fine work on the Linux kernel and with organizations like OSDL. We are thrilled to welcome him to Google," said Google Open Source Program Manager Chris DiBona.

Nice and congrats Andrew :-)

==>"There we have it, Google has its own Linux"

but they always had it .. The googleOS is a souped up version of the original linux kernal --so to create a superduper version to control the internet, they need hacks from the kind of Andrew M!!

this brings me to the questions, whatever happened to the google cube and the malmart rumor ??

Linux used by Google is (according to official information) a RedHat with kernel modified to Google's architecture.
