Google vs. Microsoft

I always found it ironic that as much as Google despises Microsoft, it continued to use Redmond products. Now Google is taking either a great leap forward or a great leap back by ditching Windows.

Google claims the move is due to the insecurity of Windows, especially in light of the Chinese attack on Google. But as I recall, wasn't it Gmail that was cracked?

In any event, Google is now pushing either Macs (I thought they hated Cupertino as much as Redmond) or Linux.

The move has self-important pundits questioning the future of Windows. But with a 90-some-odd-percent market, I wouldn't be too worried. If Vista couldn't kill Windows, nothing can.

Do you agree or is Windows finally under pressure from Google and the iPad? You tell me at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
