For what's worth since at the moment I'm a spectator and sometimes
comments maker, I agree.

Once when trying to build a kernel that was closer to the term unique
rather then the generic one that normally traveled with one of my
systems, I came across references to certain items that had Google's
fingerprints on it. I asked about it here, and sure enough the
response was that it was invented for the Google servers, and was sent
as contribution to the Linux Kernel community.

I wasn't able to make my unique kernel work, but it was an interesting job.

And I'm still interested in figuring out further how I can contribute
to this particular example of software running hardware properly.
