Google Chrome: Will 60% Business Really Dump Their Current OS This December?

Must Read

Every now and then Google has kept shifting the gears towards the launch & details about its much ambitious desktop project – Google Chrome OS. Finally it seems that company has decided to throw out the new project in market for people to have hand-on-experience and feedback. To start with, Company has recently deployed new systems loaded with Chrome OS to sr. management, including Sergey Brin – Co-founder of Google – who reluctantly made the exchange.

However, company has been tight lipped about the required hardware specification to run the new OS. Besides, there are many grey areas, getting visible due to upcoming new desktop OS, about which company don’t want to reveal any future roadmap now. In the presence of highly successful Android – a mobile & tablet OS – analyst are struggling to find the strong justification & need of different OS for personal computers & laptops.

Among all new thoughts and happenings in-and-out of Google, Linus Upson – Vice President of Engineering – is very optimistic about the success of Chrome OS. He feels that minimum 60% of business will immediately migrate to Chrome from their current OS, as reported by NYT. Although the above statement was market under the quotes, it’s certain that company is bullish on the future of new OS.


Chrome OS has been built keeping the roaring environment of cloud computing and both equally compliments each other seamlessly. However, Google is trying to follow the footmarks of Apple where users will be bound to work under the ecosystem of software built only by the Google. You will have to use Google Crome browser, Google Docs or cloud based Office 365 as an alternative of software or Gmail, Picasa or whatever which runs over the web.


Despite of all facts, features or figures, apparently Google’s executives are not sensing & testing the ground realities. Various reports suggest that usage of desktop computers is still higher than netbooks or laptops. People still feel unsecure about their data despite of storing it locally on their Pc. How many business will take the donkey job of transforming their huge existing data to supporting format over cloud ? There are many similar questions which are residing at the side of customers. Even, inside the Google, there is enormous amount of uncertainty over the co-existence of Android and Chrome OS among development teams who work on these OS separately.

However, some industry analysts take this as Google’s new strategy to counter business threats. Google relies heavily on its online ad revenue. The major share of company’s overall revenue comes from their online ads network which is getting squeeze slowly. Thanks to Facebook & Social Media. Google is still hunting for an answer to Facebook and company is desperate to set alternate channels for revenue. That’s why Google is enforcing new enablers which can make people to spend more time over the internet beyond their traditional browsing, & social media activities.

Let it be any reason, it would be interesting to see the launch & adoption of Google’s Chrome OS once it will be launched in late December.  No wonder, if it grasps the market, Google will redefine the era of computing.



  1. It’s really not the OS which drives businesses my friend, but the applications. Unless small Indian businesses get to run Tally on chrome, or work with their macro enabled spreadsheets on google docs, it will never take off. However, it will be a good alternative for Netbooks and cyber cafes
