Google Director of Technology Craig Silverstein answers questions put by Slashdot readers. Google has over 10,000 servers running Linux. Some good points which may seem obvious but are always worth remembering:
The innovation is driven neither by hardware or software, but by products. We look around and say, “What would be the next great product to have?” and then figure out what software and hardware we need to make that product work and work great. If we concentrate on users, everything else — including money — will follow.
We will do well to keep both points in mind for Emergic.
