Google Because of Google I/O going full-steam ahead, it's a bit of a Google thing going on here. Google co-founder Sergey Brin had a little chat with the press about the Chromebooks Google announced yesterday, and during that talk, he stated that traditional PC operating systems are "torturing users" with their complexity. While he certainly has a point, I'm not sure I like his solution. Giving Google all my files? Yeah... No.

Perhaps Chrome isn't it, but the way we interact with computers is changing. The days of WIMP (Windows, Icons, Mouse, Pointer) are numbered.

I think you meant to say "the way YOU interact with computers is changing". Not everyone is happy with touch-screens and tablets/smart-phones. Of all the people I know only 1 of them has a tablet, and most of the time it's stuck in a corner under his computer desk while he uses the desktop PC. Regrets buying it he said!

No. The author was right to generalise and say the way "we" interact with computers is changing. Check some sales numbers from the past few years and see which segments are growing and which are declining.

And, no offence, but I doubt all the people you know would qualify as statistically significant in this context :p
