Google Outsmarts MS at LinuxWorld

Engineers from Google and Microsoft faced off at LinuxWorld in New York last week to see which company could answer the most tech-related trivia. The search engine rivals took part in the Golden Penguin Bowl, which was heralded as a battle of good against evil - or Google's "Geeks" against Microsoft's "Nerds."

Attired in Star Wars regalia, Microsoft took an early lead with a question about the Apple Lisa, but missed one on the year Windows 1.0 was released to the public: 1985. Google answered its fare share of open source questions and eventually won the competition 19,000 to 18,750.
