Google Baraza: impact on SO franchise?

Google seems to be sneaking in their own answers software, in a different language.

It does seem to be very similar in features and functionality.

And it's not stackexchange :D

I think this is not new. Google used to have "Google answers" long time ago, probably before stackoverflow was even popular. For some reason, Google has cancelled this project: http://answers.google.com/answers/

The "otvety" just means "answers" in Russion, so it's just a localized version of Google answers. So it looks like it was not cancelled in some local markets like Russia.

Google answers pre-dated this and was rather different. –  SLaks Nov 29 '10 at 14:30
    
google answers, was very far from what you see on russian version. it looks like one of the first versions of bbforums, "otvety" has a very similar funtionality to stackoverflow –  Anonymous Nov 29 '10 at 14:34
