Google Goobuntu Linux OS : Ubuntu Distro
Google has often been rumored to be working on an operating system product to compete on fair levels with the software giants Microsoft. Albeit doing so is easily said than done, we now have some confirmations on a possible project which might indeed see Google release an operating system. Then again, it could be just another version of a Linux Distro.
Google has somewhat confirmed that they are indeed working on a version of the popular Ubuntu Distro of Linux operating system, and it is codenamed Goobuntu. No other info on the project has been unveiled by Google.
Market experts believe that the company might be developing it just like hundreds of other internal projects for their employees to spend their research work on. It can be used for internal deployment for testing out Linux based software applications or even might see a global release for the general user.
Google showcased their plans to get into software market when they started launching software applications like Google Desktop, Google Talk, and Google Earth. They also recently launched a Google Pack, which comes with their own and third party tools helpful for computer newbies. Releasing an entire distribution of Linux just might be the next big step for the company.
Ubuntu has become one of the most popular Linux distributions for new adaptors of the platform around the world. The organization delivers free CDs to interested users and is being used on servers as well. Makes it the perfect platform for Google to develop their own version of the Linux operating system.
One thing is for sure, the owner of the domain name Goobuntu.com (owned by MundoCubano.com, a Cuban news & culture portal) is a very happy hombre today!
