    Google is adding an antivirus and anti-spam solution to its arsenal with the acquisition of GreenBorder Technologies Inc. Google did not comment on the story, but GreenBorder, a Mountain View, Calif. -based security company, posted a statement on its Web site, telling users that it has been bought by Google:
    GreenBorder, which was founded in 2001, offers consumer and enterprise-level security products, protecting against viruses, spyware, and Trojans.

    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. :)
