Google "Let's face it. Google pretty much owns the Internet landscape. Unless something truly unexpected happens within the web community, I see no real indicator that they'll lose their market share anytime soon. This also opens them up to other online opportunities should they decide to pursue them. One such opportunity is believed to be the much famed idea of a Google OS. The rumors have been floating around back and forth for awhile now and many people believe that it's simply a matter of time. Well I'm here to tell you that this is never going to happen; at least not in a form that we might expect to see, that is."

Naysayers and protractors are out in force again. If Google has an OS, then more power to them. If they're just a service company or an advertising company, more power to them. I personally like the idea of them providing the OS online, but letting you save to your own harddrive at home. I think I read that somewhere... some commentary somewhere.

Point is, Microsoft, Apple, Google, Yahoo!, or whoever are worried about what every other company is worried about... the bottom line. Microsoft currently has the OS market cornered. They're losing ground, but they will never dissappear unless they do something drastically stupid.

Google should be expected to look out for itself. That's what companies do. That doesn't make them the enemy. It just makes them a typical company.
