Writely is part of the google family...

Okay... back on this Web 2.0 companies don't run on Microsoft's platform thing. Well it ain't so.

I was interested when I heard that Writely got purchased by google... great for them. Good for google.

Writely is runing ASP.NET / C#. I find this very interesting because google is a linux shop. I wonder what they are going to do with this company, rewrite it all? Run it on mono?

I appears something is going to happen:

And I quote "...until we've moved Writely to Google's software architecture." Sounds like a rewrite to me. But heck who would blame them if google has like 25,000 linux machines and no windows licenses :)
