About a week ago, Google announced Google Secure Access Wifi in San Francisco. Of course it's entirely beta, and only available in a very small geographic area, and (again, of course), it's a Windows client.
Ah, but Mac folks don't just take that stuff lying down. Apparently the Google VPN server is just PPTP (after all, they aren't running Windows) so Kevin Stock provided a hack to let Mac's join in.
I wish Google would pay more attention to Mac and Linux users. Microsoft can't be ignored, but they certainly aren't Google's pal, so you'd think that at least giving token attention to the rest of us would make sense.
Got something to add? Send me email.
