  1. Huh?

    Google branding their own box... to sell at Walmart... without Windoze!

    Google's developing their own operating system.

    Come to think of it, I think this is old news. I'll check the web.
  2. Wow, I guess this is kind of old news, but it looks like M$oft is gonna be seeing some serious rivalry in the near future. Here's a taste...
  3. This is great news...I would love to dump Microsoft and would do so in a heartbeat.

    Everything Google I have tried is great...anyone using Google's Picasa? I love it...and free!

    Even the hiring at Google is unconventional...interesting questions on their test given to applicants include
    "This space left intentionally blank. Please fill it with something that improves upon emptiness,"


    "What's the coolest hack you've ever written?" Another says: "What's broken with Unix? How would you fix it?"

    I already dumped Outlook e-Mail and Contacts in favor of Gmail, and am looking forward to Google's implementing a decent calendar/task list feature. It is much more convenient to keep information online, and be able to access it from any system capable of running a Web browser.

    A simple, easy-to-configure OS, coupled with web-based apps, could challenge Windows' desktop dominance.
