Couple articles on Linux world where Sergey Brin gave the 'keynote' address.

Wired [wired.com]
InfoWorld [staging.infoworld.com]
ComputerWorld.com.au [computerworld.com.au]
IT-Director [it-director.com]

Rather interesting considering Microsoft recently called Google a competitor [webmasterworld.com].

Could their use of Linux be why Microsoft views them as such a Competitor? I dont see MSN and Google as such since one is a portal and the other is a search engine. If I want news I might go to MSN if I want to search I might go to Google. If I want news I dont go to Google I go to the news sites. Just like I dont go to the news sites for searches. I think thair may be more at play here than we realize!

In the Yusuf Mehdi's article, (Corporate Vice President of MSN), the rationale for describing MSN as a competitor was that they were very much a portal - in that they offer such things as maps, financial info, stock quotes, phone lookups... and news.

Running Linux is not an issue for him.

Strangely, Yusuf also compared 'the internet' to Las Vegas!

From a Redmond point of view, anyone who uses Linux is a competitor.

That means that they should view themselves as competittors too:
