Why the Cloud
users need Chrome OS to succeed
Google's Web-based operating system, Chrome OS is getting a lot of praise recently, due
to the company's recent showing of more of the platform's features. Google is testing Chrome OS on computers to see how it
holds up as a standard operating system for users. There is some question as to whether or not it can eventually become a
real swap out for Windows.
Even though the most popular initial
reviews of Chrome OS were positive, it's becoming clearer than ever that the operating system is VERY IMPORTANT to
It might not be pulling in revenue for Google yet, but it's a long-term prospect for
the search winner.

Currently, Google's top product, Search, is available
only through a Web browser or mobile app. Now, with Chrome OS, Google can cover that gap in the computing space just as it
has in the mobile market.
can it control how people search, but it can totally control how they get there. That's a key thing in all this. And it can't
be overlooked....because Google is the Cloud winner and the days of desktop PCs and Windows are DEAD......and you Cloud people
ARE the future......
