Australian Company Orders 8,000 Chromebooks To Replace Windows PCs

this to say:

“We’re about to roll out 8000 Chrome OS devices starting in the second half of the year. It’s to replace a large part of our PC desktop fleet with Chrome OS.”
One of the reasons cited for a move of this sorts is the increased security offered by Chromebooks, but then again, Windows 8 is no slouch when it comes to this either. And I am rather sure, costs also had a large say in all of this. However, Gartner research director Gunnar Berger believes security is one of the primary reasons here, and despite Microsoft’s best efforts, Chromebook adoption is actually on the rise:
“Organizations that have moved to more web-based applications may find this approach very attractive. It’s a compelling solution for an organization that may be aggressively moving off of Windows.”
Call it fate, but the fact that the advent of Windows 8 came around the same time as the retirement of Windows XP meant that this could be one of the causes of this Chromebook growth — these devices are no longer relegated to educational institutes now. The operating systems space could not be more interesting.]]>
