Google’s role in an open source world
This would not be the open source decade without Google.
Everyone who cares knows that Google's giant server farms run Linux. The company freely offers APIs for its most interesting features, it contributes to a wide variety of open source projects, and it will host a Developer Day on May 31 at 10 company offices around the world.
As a result Google probably has more free development work going on outside its offices than any other company in the world.
