dude, lose the down on google attitude! whatever is on the google blog is submitted entirely by employees speaking their mind. it's not a PR strategy. take it from big mama. we do some things poorly, but this isn't one of them. :)

I haven't shopped there for a while, but before Yahoo! Travel was just a gateway for Travelocity, with easier interface, but some inexplicable glitches when you were actually trying to book a flight.

Does it mean Yahoo is taking the travel site more seriously now?

At least at google developers can use their preferred OS without being forced to use any "SSH port forwarding magic".

Where'd you get the idea I had any OS religion?

They are folks at Yahoo using the following desktop OSes in supported configurations:

- FreeBSD
- Windows
- Linux
- Mac OS X

And, for all I know, there are others.

I'm honestly amazed at how many folks completely missed the point about what I was saying. I guess I'll have to try again tomorrow.

Well, if you can't come through to a lazy bum like me, how did you ever get in Yahoo!?

Come on guys, give him a break. Sounds like some folks might just be jealous that THEY don't work @ Y! and the easiest method of expressing that is attacking Jeremy. You could be working at a Military facility like me where Windows 2000 is dictated and any elaborate "tools" they want implemented aren't given the funding or means to achieve. I WISH I could use Linux at work. I WISH I could use MySQL instead of Access as a "database solution". I can't, but if you want a job let me know. Sheesh.

Yes, they're taking Y!Travel MUCH more seriously now. It's gone from around 5 employees to 60+. They still use Travelocity as the main booking partner, but buying a ticket is just one part of the journey.

Yes, Google Blogs are written by the actual person whose name appears. It's not PR. Reza really works for Google. Just Google him :)
