For the last years the strongest fortress of Microsoft has been the operating system – Windows.
Now Google has informed its intentions to offer an operating system for personal computers. The operating system is called Google Chrome OS referring to the Chrome browser that is getting very popular. The operating system is therefor based on the browser and integrates perfectly into all the multitude of system that Google has been developing and are web based.
It is clear that Google’s goal is to attack the Microsoft stronghold with a clearer vision for the future. A future that is based on cheap access to the Internet and always-connected wherever and whenever you need. And also a future based on small and cheap devices that you can use to browse the web world and communicate with friends and coworkers.
The picture is getting clear – wherever you look you can use a system from Google:
Of course Google integrates the future operating system with Google Friend Connect which makes it far more powerful than Facebook, Twitter and other social networks.
Now it will be interesting to see if and how Microsoft reacts…
