though I am a Windows user I treat this news as a good one. Having used some of google's services like toolbar, search engine as well as email I feel that they have the capability to be at least a threat to Bill Gates' Microsoft. Someday a new Operating SYstem made by Google will appear and I will certainly give that a try.
Apparently, this news is not true. This speculation has been quashed by Sergey Brin.

Perhaps it's a pity, I had almost started looking forward to GWrite, GSpread, et al But, on the other hand, it's good because this would have really fueled the Google-is-Big-Brother image, which I would not be entirely happy about.
hehehhe google wanna to attack and msn messanger they are launched a google instant chat very very easy to use...
No, they are not "attacking" MSN Messenger; they are simply offering an alternative, which is their right as a business. For example, if I started a new computer company and began selling commercially-manufatured computers, similar to those of Gateway, Dell, and Compaq (except that they would work, of course), I wouldn't necessary be "attacking" any of those computer companies. I would simply be competing. Business (when done honestly/lawfully, anyway) is a race; not a war.
I'm beginning to think Google is getting overly ambitious. Guess Bills gonna have some competition on that.
Nice, that would be pretty sweet if this really does come out. This will definately get some attention as it is a much cheaper alternative to Microsoft's Office software. I think that the place where we may see this used a lot will be in schools and other places that tend to have vast amounts of computers concentrated in one area. Well, only time will tell to see where this project goes and whether or not it will turn out to be a success or a flop. Thanks for the very interesting post, by the way. Keep up the great job!
Wow lol i was waiting for this lolfinaly another pc friendly company is taking them on lol!!!!my life is nearing completion loldamn this is good ok well yeahgo google!!!
Well let me see... Eaten by a shark or eaten by a Lion... tough choice, but the same resultsI don't believe that it makes much of a difference which one of these companies get to be Number One... as noted earlier, they both are so focused on the almighty dollar that providing the service to us consumers is not the principal purpose for their existence. Methinks they are both too large for their own good. Google will run into the same size and market share issues that Microsoft did, in one way or another, sooner than later. I'm going to sit on the sidelines and watch it all happen.
I have to disagree. I've never considered Google to be "focused on the almighty dollar", although they undoubtedly are. I think that they offer lots of quality free services, which is more than one can say for Microsoft.

i always knew google would have a war with somebody. its just impossible for anybody to not hate mcrosoft if their stuff is better than yours. google is partly jealous of m icrosoft because it has all the same stuff google has only it spreads quicker than google's stuff. some beta google stuff is at labs.google.com. try that out. i has a lot of things from google still inn beta stages.
Can Google possibly get any better? Google is the internet champ search engine to me and I would personally LOVE to see them take on a GIANT monolopy like Microsoft. Bill Gates already has to much money and needs to let others develpoe software for a while. GO GOOGLE!!!!
I'd just like to point out that, as is mentioned in previous posts in this thread, the article the thread is based off of is a hoax. There IS NO WAR ON MICROSOFT! Therefore, there's no reason for people to post saying that they are rooting for Google in the upcoming war.
Google's OS is going to be web design based. Since just web designing dosint take alot the computers wont have the greatest specs but will be cheap and effective. Also the OS might have quite a few features that will enable web designers to produce websites much more easier. Such as a easy to use Web Server etc...
But if Google is at war with Microsoft, they had it coming. Finally somebody actually has the advance technology and money to compete with the evil Microsoft. Then again, Microsoft has been going down lately, knowing that several Internet Explore users are switching to Firefox. Two versus one big company--they'll eventually go down.
The "information" that supports that is a few posts before mine that inform that the article this thread is based off of was a hoax, and as such there is no "war" in Microsoft by Google. Feel free to go back into the thread and check.
So, basically, this topic is based on nothing? Meh. Lets hope a moderator will close this.
I am expecting google to this even before and now that they are into it Microsoft should now have work doubly hard. Google has proven that they can be a player in this market and it will really be good to us users for we do have choices, as they say always say, the more the merrier
Google hasn't done anything that can really be considered competition to Microsoft, except offer a few (excellent) free services and winning over Microsoft employees. The only way that Google gains money is by stocks, advertisment programs, and certain programs (such as Google Earth Pro). They are hardly rooted deep enough in the economical soil to withstand a corporative gale like Microsoft sweeping over them.
Thats all music to my ears!
I mean google are MUCH better than Microsoft - in almost all ways. I feel sorry for GMAIL, havong to change their name due to some childish company not allowing them to use that name!
Also, imaging google brought out their own Operating system - i mean with the technology of today - they could suprise us!
I think we will all have to wait on that one lol - great newsthough - who do you think will win the war?
What did Gmail change their name to? I have Gmail and I have not noticed anything different.
