>But it is also true that Google does a lot of in-house development,
possibly based on GPL code (how would I know?) which is *used* by the
public -- on Google's servers -- but not *released* to us.
I don't care that much about it, because even if Google would release this software probably most of us wouldn't be able to use the software because we don't have the servers Google has.
I care much more about software which Google develops and releases as non-Free Software (e.g. Google Earth). That's where Google looks really bad as a "Free Software citizen".
