Ubuntu + Google = Goobuntu!

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. Jad,

    This is just another Google rumor. According to Ars Technica, Google spokeswoman Sonya Bor?lEitherway said that "[w]e use Ubuntu internally but have no plans to distribute it outside of the company."

    Even if correct why would you be so interested in using a 20% beta product of google? that would soon be flushed out of their products list. Stick with the original mate ;)
