Google: Linux repositories for the masses!

In order to further promote their own software, Google has created server repositories for easier download. I really don't know the deal of such actions which actually promote indirectly GNU/Linux, but maybe they'd like their software to be used on other platforms too, other than Microsoft Windows (they get a bigger share of the market?). Currently, Google Linux repositories, by providing step-by-step tutorials, support all the popular distributions such as Debian, Ubuntu, Gentoo, Mandriva, SUSE, Red Hat and Fedora. They even have an automated script for the successful repo installation.
