While I agree that it's naïve to put too much trust in any large company, even with a "do no evil" reputation like Google's, I'm forced to call FUD on this comment. It is absolutely not in Google's commercial interest to "destroy Linux"...
Google has a history of destroying its partners while telling the sweetest stories about good and evil. Why would this market be any diffrent?
Heard of Chrome book or android? What do google benifit from more: having a ubuntu in every computer or watching chrome OS and android dominate?
Its not a "accident" that they develope OS'es and steal code from linux and oracle they want the Linux market. And eventually they like to take as much market as possible.
Google will try and probably do nice in killing Linux especially since the Linux community is cheering its own death, google have no love for linux simply its just marketing the nice guy talk. Its money talking, google as a company has the pressure to make more and more just like everyone else. Google is seeking more and new markets mainly due to facebook. Facebook is kinda stepping on their toes when it comes to ads (but google first stepped at webmasters toes in this area first in the usual destroying partners approatch so maybe they deserve it?)
