“Google is hosting an event today to offer the first official glimpse at the Chrome operating system. Chrome has ignited enthusiasm in an operating system market that has been largely stagnant for years. Google may succeed in shaking things up a bit,” Tony Bradley reports for PC World.
Bradley asks, “Maybe Google can succeed where Apple and Linux have failed?”
MacDailyNews Take: Apple hasn’t failed. Neither has Linux (if you go back to the server room).
Bradley continues, “Google has a bit of a Midas touch, so it’s not unreasonable to think it could find success with an operating system. It has stunned the mobile operating system market with Android, which is currently taking the world by storm with devices like the Motorola Droid.”
MacDailyNews Take: Bullshit. Beyond search, very little that Google’s touched has turned to gold. You have to first get out of perpetual beta-land before you can ever hope to go gold. And, reporting that Android is “taking the world by storm” is plain old hyperbole. Stick to reporting the facts, Tony.
Bradley continues, “Wherever the Chrome OS ultimately takes us, it seems assured of shaking things up at least a little bit. We’ll have to wait a year or three to see how things turn out and find out whether Google can put a dent in Microsoft’s dominance of the operating system market.”

MacDailyNews Take: “Reporters” who inject personal opinion into articles masquerading as “news reports” obviously do not grasp the value of journalistic credibility. Contact Mr. Bradley, “a 4-time Microsoft MVP,” via email at:
