Google vs. Microsoft
I always found it ironic that as much as Google despises Microsoft, it continued to use Redmond products. Now Google is taking either a great leap forward or a great leap back by ditching Windows.
Google claims the move is due to the insecurity of Windows, especially in light of the Chinese attack on Google. But as I recall, wasn't it Gmail that was cracked?
In any event, Google is now pushing either Macs (I thought they hated Cupertino as much as Redmond) or Linux.
The move has self-important pundits questioning the future of Windows. But with a 90-some-odd-percent market, I wouldn't be too worried. If Vista couldn't kill Windows, nothing can.
Do you agree or is Windows finally under pressure from Google and the iPad? You tell me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
