Does Google TiSP work with Linux?


I came across this today: http://www.google.com/tisp/

I'm thinking of trying it out, but I want to know if anyone else has had experience with it. It is ad-based, and I'm thinking it might not work correctly with Linux. Has anyone successfully used this with Linux? (april fools)

no, they tried a few initial pilots which i had some involvement in, but they had issues with the sprocketting interface when they tried to overlay the manifold libraries on the hyper drive. shame.

I thought the sprocketing was in one of the lines of code that SCO are challenging - how do Google think they can get around it without a major kernel rewrite?

I called earlier, Google have a spare 30 mins tomorrow, they said they'd go and buy SCO.

And fall into the very trap that IBM and Novell have avoided? I thought they were smarter than the average bear?

I've got it working OK with Xubuntu 6.10. Check your dependencies. Are you using the right toilet paper?
