Indeed, the user is Google in this case, just like they use Linux in many other places. If Google starts seeing a decline in Linux quality, they will either fork or switch. And to some extend, developing wavelocks behind closed doors could be considered a kind of fork (though on a small scale).

I bet it would be rather the opposite. If Google starts to see that Linux does not have the _functionality_ they want, they will fork or switch.

Why do you think they are _not_ using some of the BSDs?
