I am not sure how many people have seen the news and even how many people care, but it appears that Google is planning on launching an operating system. Originally this will be just for netbooks but it may also be used on desktops.
It is apparently designed for ease of use with the internet and internet applications.

What are people's thoughts on this? Will you be tempted to switch, or would you rather stick with Microsoft?
This is good news i have read this. All the best for the google chrome os. awaiting for the same. If google chrome os is installable in every computer and running this will really click if its like mac os. We have to think. Let us see what is going to happen
I can't wait to check it out!
They're targeting Linux/Mac for the most part and the OS is going to be more geared towards "light" netbook type computers.
Seems like a nice addition to their list of products. I welcome our new overlords, Billy Gates was so Windows 95.
I am definitely excited about the Google OS. It's going to be based on a linux core, so it won't run Windows executables, but it will have the best of linux, and google has always been very good with their interface, imo, so I hope it will do much better than the rest of the Linux distros.
Will have to see what impact it will have. Free operating systems have been around a long time competing with Windows and have usually been a niche market for the anti-windows brigade.
Google's strategy is to make something free and useful, and then monetize it with advertising or some other way. Not sure how they could do that with an operating system?
With such a name and such a hubscore, showing up on the forums is asking for trouble
Hal Licino has a good Hub on this - it's just Linux rebadged.
these big boys are always searching for ways to outdo the other. Just when we get used to one operating system, another pops up. Google and Microsoft are like waring tribes
sounds good but maybe they'll do a chrome and start spying on our internet activities to sell off to the highest bidder,
it will be awesome if it's open source though
Competition is a good thing and Google plans on dominating the web online and offline.

So I've been getting the Windows 10 pop-ups for the last several months and I've been clicking the "no thanks" button on every one. This morning, I wiggled my trackball to wake my PC from sleep mode and fracking Windows 10 had installed itself and only needed me to press the accept or...

For Windows users: would you change your operating system if someone helped you install it?For example, Mac OS X (when you buy a Mac) or GNU/Linux, like Ubuntu Linux?

actually, there is really no "THE BEST" os in the market.. It's all about user preference.. but I can give you the most preferred OS'es by the masses..- Windows (7, xp) - these are preferred by people because of its "user friendliness" and a lot of softwares are compatible with...
