YUI customer success stories: google???

Looks like google has been using CSS from the YUI javascript library for the google personalized homepage. As Pat Cavit writes, “YUI is so awesome even google uses it“.
Now some would be tempted to make a fuss over the fact that google has technically violated the BSD license that YUI ships with by removing the copyright notice from the source code (which was really silly, since it’s just in the source code: it doesn’t appear on the page at all).
But I think Yahoo should instead take this as a compliment to the awesome work that the YUI team has done over the past year. If the google devs are happy with how the code has worked, maybe they can write a customer testimonial for the YUI marketing folks to put on the YUI web site. Or maybe next year the google team can demo at the YUI party?

    Hey Jon – so what are you guys using on slideshare? Going with Ruby on Rails (?), I think you must be using prototype/scriptaculous?

    Mandy,
    We use prototype and scriptaculous, correct.
    Try view source! Have a look and tell me what you think?
