Ballmer Bad-Mouths Google Chrome OS

http://www.pcworld.com

You've got to hand it to Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer: The man's never afraid to speak his mind. He may be wrong a lot of the time, like in 2007 when he laughed off the iPhone, or defended Vista before an irate user. Nevertheless, Redmond's bombastic boss is always entertaining.

Google's Chrome OS Threatens Linux, Is Good For Microsoft

http://ostatic.com

One thing that both Google and Apple share is that almost the instant that they announce a new product, the public loves it. That's partly because they tend to deliver winning products, but they don't always do so. Google has shuttered a number of projects from its labs, and its productivity applications are popular, but haven't come close to toppling Microsoft Office.

http://aligunduz.org

I see a big threat in what Google is aiming here, which is complete dependence on the cloud. Google plans to release most of the so called Chrome OS as free software. Yes, but we should also look at what this OS is reduced to.

Is Android the key to the GNU/Linux desktop? Really?

http://www.freesoftwaremagazine.com

I have been talking about the convergence of telephony and desktop computing for years. Nowadays, more and more companies are announcing small devices ("netbooks") that will run Android - and we are not talking about phones here. Is this the beginning of a new revolution? Or maybe not?

How Far Linux Support Has Come

http://www.linuxloop.com
