My bet is that it’s not even going to make a DENT against Microsoft’s Windows 7 and Windows 8. The problem to me as I have said before on this blog is that Google went the easy way and it’s not going to catch on. I LOVE the Chrome browser and use it for all my browsing (even for updating this blog right now) but as an operating system environment…umm no. Just because it can doesnt mean it should. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tVqe8ieqz10 I have seen the actual implementation of Chrome OS and I have to say, not that impressive or dynamic. I never thought I would say this but if this is the Status Quo, Microsoft will wipe the floor with Google. Now over at ZDNET, Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols disagrees with me and says that Chrome OS will be huge for the following reasons.
- Attractive business packaging and pricing
- Ease of use
- Lots of Applications
- Google Brand Recognition
