Pretty damn impressive. Google is looking to become the next generation de-facto programming platform. It's pretty amazing what you can do with more money than God and some of the greatest minds around today.

I also found this tutorial from IBM:

I would say its good and bad.
Good that you can have your running application on a scalable solid system but bad that your relying on google for everything, its worth supporting the local community if you can... I know with budgets its not easy...
