A lot were skeptical on hearing about Google’s plan in producing an operating system to rival Microsoft’s. However, over the weeks, it seems that Google is slowly but surely making it clear that they indeed, mean business.
For many years now, Microsoft Windows has held the top position of the personal computer operating system market with slightly less than 90% while Apple is left with the rest of the market share.
A release of Microsoft’s Windows 7 would also add to its already large hold of the market.
But Google doesn’t give up that easily, and now has partners that share its vision. Among these include big names such as Acer, Adobe, ASUS, Freescale, Hewlett-Packard, Lenovo, Qualcomm, Texas Instruments, Toshiba and even Intel. An article from Information Week reports that these companies are now “working with Goggle to help it re-imagine the operating system”.
Well, I said it before and I’ll say it again: somebody’s gonna be making a run for its money now 🙂
