Google Android, Killer Of Windows 7

Thursday, April 2, 2009
Rumors are spreading that Google incorporation is in talks with leading notebook producers to offer a version of Android in anticipation of competing with Microsoft's own Windows 7, an operating system designed to be flexible enough to target everything from the basic notebook market to high-end gaming PCs.

Claims that Google incorporation would be getting into the operating systems business go back at least three years, but the current rumors could well prove to be true. Android is well developed, some key players appear to be in place, and the Google name resonates more strongly with the public. It could even mean a serious challenge to Microsoft's mindshare.

Netbooks are the closest things to Internet "appliances", doing all the basic things most consumers expect from their computers. Early ASUS offerings with modified versions of Xandros Linux have proved popular, particularly among middle-aged women in South Korea and elsewhere (and, of course, among other demographics). Ubuntu has developed their "Netbook Remix" to target the same market. But the Google name counts for a lot.

Power of the brand still serves to instill consumers with trust, even though privacy issues have arisen in the media over the past few years. "To Google" is, for many, computer-speak for "to search". If Google does in fact get some sort of purchase out of Android, it could be the thin end of the wedge in a longer-term strategy to overthrow Microsoft's control of the desktop. If they time things right, then they could well be the first past the post, beating Microsoft's Windows seven to a key developing market and positioning themselves to take on Microsoft in the other markets it has long dominated.
