Google plans to attack Microsoft’s core business i.e. globally dominant Windows operating system for personal computers by introducing new s/w i.e.  Chrome OS.

Microsoft OS’s Share on PC

  • 90% PCs using Microsoft’s OS .
  • Google is planning to capture Microsoft Share of 90%.

Google OS:

It will be marketed for people who spend most of their time on the web. Google OS will be open source. It will run on both x86, as well as ARM chips .x86 and ARM(advance risc machine).x86 and ARM  are high performance chips that requires very low power which is ideal for netbooks. Netbooks are the category of small, light and inexpensive laptop computers suited for general computing and accessing web based applications.It will be light weight and will be very fast so that we can browse the web quickly. It will be available for consumers in the second half of 2010.

Google Chrome OS Cost:

  • Google Chrome OS is totally free.
  • Google will earn revenue from connecting applications or advertising.

Google Strategy to Capture Market

  • Google is going to lock in partnerships with PC maker such as HP & Dell. Because HP & Dell are using  90%  windows on most of there products
  • Acer Inc, the world’s No. 3 PC brand, has already agreed to sell netbooks that run on Android to be released this quarter.
  • HP says “We want to understand all the different operating systems available to customers, and will assess the impact of Chrome on the computer and communications industry.”

A Critic on Microsoft OS

The operating systems that browsers run on were designed in an era where there was no web,” Sundar Pichai, vice president of product management at Google, said in the blog post. The Chrome operating system is “our attempt to rethink what operating systems should be.”

Critics on Chrome OS

  • Security:

Against the Google claim of security Dave Marcus, director of security research and communications for McAfee Avert Labs  says  “I have serious doubts about their claims simply because an operating system must execute code and malware is code.

  • Free from Viruses:

Like the Chrome browser, Google Chrome OS will be based on an existing open-source project; the Chrome OS will be based on the open-source Linux kernel. “Malware takes on many forms, including JavaScript malware, which Google’s Chrome is still vulnerable to,” says Robert Hansen, CEO of SecTheory.

But negative point about Google Chrome is that as it is web based OS and we need to store data on Google’s server rather than our own local system so we are going to give Google access to our data.
