    I read the article and came away with the feeling that the writer hadn't quite got all his thoughts on the matter properly sorted out. For one, to have Ubuntu joining up with Mozilla to take on Google is more than just a David vs Goliath scenario. Google is much, much more than just a search engine. They have a very strong team. Ubuntu and Mozilla together wouldn't even make a dent in Google's market influence.

    I am not saying that Google shouldn't be challenged. What I am saying is that it takes a lot more than Ubuntu and Mozilla to pick a fight with Google. Fight as in a fair fight with a fair chance of winning.
