Google. One thing powers its greatness. Software.
I would disagree. The infrastructure -- particularly its scale -- is as much a part of their greatness (perhaps even more so) as the software that powers it. This is implied, though not acknowledged:
...Nutch hasn't prospered to where I would like it to be because of the costs of running the operation. To truly test the system you need a big index. You need to spend a lot of money crawling. To test it against Google anyway.
So, I really don't think this is a challenge open source can entirely address since there is no such thing as "open source hardware" or "open source bandwidth" that is necessary to match Google's feat.
