Looks like Google is trying to pull a Walmart


Walmart is the world’s largest retailer, as Google is the world’s largest Internet company. When Walmart decides to refuse to do business with a specific brand, it has major repercussions for that brand.  As of early this year, Google has decided that it will phase out Microsoft Windows as its operating system, and focus on Linux or Macs.  Apparently employees (any of the 10,000) who want to stay on Windows, need approval from the CIO (Chief Information Officer).  Pretty intense.

Clearly a mixture of the new Chrome platform and the hackers in China, have provoked Google to react in this way.

It’s incorrect to assume that Mac operating systems are any safer than Windows.

“…the reality is that the primary reason Macs aren’t attacked and compromised more often is that the platform with 92 percent market share promises malware developers a significantly higher return on investment than the platform with 5 percent market share.”

As of last week, Apple surpassed Microsoft in market value…Google is phasing out Windows…looks like everyone is bullying Microsoft.  Where’s the love?

  1. The inferior technology should lose 100% of the time, and I’m surprised it’s lasted this long. Market share isn’t actually always a value indicator, as Wintel machines breakdown more frequently, and therefore get replaced faster. In the corporate world, you get what you pay for, and those that have become accustomed to using Windows don’t want to switch.

    The company that provides everything in house (Apple) will ultimately win in a war where everyone else has come late to the game.
