I can use google to do one special search, but most of the time I avoid it
as hell. Do you know what? That's the same for McDonald's.
I use disgusting services when I have no other choices.
To be exact, the last thing I still use from google is their map service.
For the search engine I have find a better a long time ago (duckduckgo
which use google's results, I know).
But if I had no other choice than to work for one of those companies,
well, why not?
In fact, I would probably have less problems working for the second, at
least the food vendor is not trying to spy the whole world (at least in
France). He just sell crap to people wanting crap. I see no problem here.
I still have my good restaurants aside, which cost a little more but can
just not be compared (obvious, they do not make fast food).

IIRC, BG is no longer working for MS. Well, he probably still have
actions, of course, but I do not think he have still a very big power.
And the subject was the number of users needed to keep a distro alive ;)
