Yeah, in case you haven’t figured it out yet, I LIKE GOOGLE. I like their spirit and I like the way they do their business. They just made my day (again) by releasing their desktop based google gadgets for linux for free and totally open sourced under Apache License 2.0 to boot. This is fantastic news for all Linux fanatics, as now you can leave those closed source OSes behind, format your harddisk and enjoy a great looking desktop on a OS that actually works (for a change).
Now if only MS and it’s minion (Carl Icahn) would leave Yahoo alone so they can port the Pipes engine to the linux desktop I’d be a happy man :-)
