Google One of the major problems Google is facing with its Chrome OS is printer support. It was reported earlier that Google is working with manufacturers on making printers act similar to for instance digital cameras, so you won't need to fiddle with drivers any longer. It turns out Google has indeed been working on this, but I don't think the solution they unveiled today is what everyone had in mind - despite that, I'm seeing the value here.

You forgot the most ironic part of the equation:

Bill Gates "sneaked" (stole, by the reckoning of the time) time on a mainframe at MIT (not sure of exact institution, but I think it was a University).

Microsoft is now pushing "the cloud" (belatedly of course, just like that "fad" TCP/IP and that other "fad" file sharing WITHOUT Netbios).

Just like their Windows Phone: they think if you rename junk (being polite, I'd prefer a four letter word that start with sh and ends with it) Se7en times, no one will notice it is still junk and still imitates the stuff your "competitor" put out last year. (or was it 2006?)
