The latest information comes from a New York Times report that cites its source as Linus Upson, Chrome chief and Google vice president of engineering. The new report says Google recently deployed new systems loaded with Chrome OS to internal Google employees, including Sergey Brin. The Google co-founder reluctantly made the exchange.
However, the kicker in the Times story was this: “Mr. Upson says that 60 percent of businesses could immediately replace their Windows machines with computers running Chrome OS. He also says he hopes it will put corporate systems administrators out of work because software updates will be made automatically over the Web.”
I personally think he's an idiot, Google's version of Steve Ballmer if you will.
1. The cost of switching out these systems as well as migrating user e-mail and accounts and TRAINING the users would be absurd.
2. Storing corporate data in the cloud is NEVER a good thing.
3. Relying upon internet connectivity for company day-to-day business is NOT a good thing.
