I almost couldn’t write this post. My sides hurt from laughing so hard. This story about Google being outraged by the NSA hacking is absolutely hilarious! Seriously??? You run a business on a “free” OS on a joke-of-the-industry CPU and you are outraged you got hacked? I got news for you, the source is available to everyone. Much of the code which goes in gets written by people who are unemployed and may not even have a degree in IT or software development. It is more than fine for a desktop, but if you think it is something to base a business on you should be polite enough to share what you’re smoking.
There is exactly one OS to use for a business.
