Well, Google has taken the next step in its world domination plan, banning Microsoft Windows from internal use.
Employees will be given the choice between Apple’s Mac OS and Linux.
Adding insult to injury, Google is also publicly citing Windows security problems for the decision and blaming Windows vulnerabilities for the China hacking incident.
So that’s 20,000+ Windows licenses that won’t be sold and renewed at Google in future years.
Given that Google is in the process of introducing a competitive platform and operating system (Android/Chrome), this move isn’t surprising. The important question for Microsoft is whether other companies will follow suit.
