Most of google's servers probably do NOT have a windowing environment running. That would suck up precious CPU cycles.

The console is more powerful than the gui anyway :)

Linux seems to be the safest operating system online. The problems and bugs that comes along with Windows will vouch that. Most of the companies run on Linux servers. Most of the webmasters love to have Linux on their machine because of safety issues. It is not a surprise to know that Linux is used by Google. It is time people to recognize open source is most safest OS around.

We have no reliable information about the information you are asking. Most of the servers use Linux and Linux is one software many developers vouch that safe. May be google prefers because it is safe..
