Google Uses Linux

“You’ll often hear members of our open source team say, ‘Every time you use Google, you’re using Linux.’ It’s absolutely true.” – That’s according to the people from Google.

Linux has been part of Google ever since the big search engine started doing their thing. “Linux has given us the power and flexibility we need to serve millions of users around the world.”

This is further verified when they stated that (every) Google engineer’s workstation runs some variant of Linux. Even the search result when you do a query on the search engine, those are brought to you by Linux.

I say, if Google uses Linux, let’s all do it! 😀

Oh, by the way… Yahoo’s outgoing mail is powered by qmail, so I guess there is a big possibility that Yahoo too, is using Linux (or Unix, whichever).
