Why I like the fact that Google is launching a PC operating system..?
Well, just having the nerve to compete head on with Microsoft in their most successful area is a powerful signal to the market place in the first place. If you ever wondered whether or not Google is serious about competing with the world's biggest most successful IT giant, then this is the time to rid yourself of any doubt.
I'm not, however, like many others, against Microsoft. I love Microsoft for a whole bunch of technological innovations. What I'm excited about is a new company on the rise providing an alternative perspective on the information age, what it's about and what opportunities this offers.
Give us more Google and companies like it! ;-)
