I'd say "The Future of Google is Linux".

Linux has been doing fine so far without Google (even if there hasn't been major fast uptake in the home markets). Can the same be said for Google without Linux?

I thought the same thing when I saw the headline.

Google could have gone with *BSD.

Just sayin'.

Still, this is like saying oranges are the future of fruit. Oranges are just one example of fruit, albeit a tasty one. Google is one Linux company out of many.

Bananas, anyone?

Buffalo berries. They make great jams and syrups, and it's really fun to say "oh, buffalo berries!"

But "oranges" can't die or go bankrupt. Google can.

Sure oranges can die or go bankrupt.

2013 - A new strain of flu hits, called Orange Flu. Early reports link the fatal illness with oranges, hence the name. Mass hysteria causes people to stop eating oranges entirely.

2015 - Commercial orange farming has almost entirely ceased, and most people have culled their private orange trees.

2016 - Research reveals that Orange Flu was in fact completely unrelated to most oranges, just a few rare varieties that are now mostly extinct with other varieties.

2016 - Some farmers attempt to revive the orange market, but lingering fear and paranoia in the maket causes these efforts to fail.

2017 - Oranges declared extinct.
