GreenBorder Technologies, Inc. has been acquired by Google, Inc. We will continue to support our existing customers through the end of their current subscriptions.

I don't think they'll do linux, they can't buy it and control it ;p
Expect their own operating system most likely.

There have been rumours about that before, and I wouldn't put it beyond Google to have a simple OS within the next few years.

Just that currently Google is so big and used by so many people, that support is almost non-existant.

Support for Google is still there. I dont see much from their offerings that arent working too well and that would require extensive support. Ive had nothing but great support from them for a couple of their software offerings.

It would be nice to see a Google OS and hopefully if they do that, they will have great software and driver support. :)
