Re: Blocking Gmail ads

Actually, with Summer of Code, I think that google contributes more to
FOSS software than almost any other entity that I can name. Maybe
their specific patches to the linux kernel they keep to themselves,
but they more than make up for it in paying for developers to write
code that will benefit lots of end users. Those kernel patches are in
all likelihood not suitable for desktop or most non-distributed server
installations anyway. And those who would need them, are likely
Google's competitors.

I thank Google for their contributions to FOSS and SoC in particular.
Evil or not, I cannot say. But I benefit from Google's services on a
day to day basis.
