Re: And so Google became the moral compass for the world
And we don't give a sh*t that they don't have free speech, since Google's servers aren't even located in those countries.
Which part didn't you understand?

So supporting free speech is hardly being (arbitrarily) the "moral compass". Do you agree with free speech or do you not? Google's motto after all is "don't be evil". If you think that following the law without question is all that there is then you fail.
It seems that nobody knows how to make an intuitive, easy-to-use desktop OS yet. Both Mac OS and Windows are relics from the past. They both haven't changed much from the 90's GUI design and they're both rather inefficient and cumbersome to use at their core. I'm not a huge fan of Google's overly simplified and minimalistic approach, but it seems that Chrome OS and the next Android is a step in the right direction. I think that for the most part, OS should be "hidden" to the users, and the majority of the inner-workings of the OS should be completely "automated". Most people don't even know what a file system is, so I think that desktop OSs are still incredibly complicated and unintuitive to use for the majority of the users.
