"Google is working on the Linux-based Chrome OS, so promoting internal use of Google products is high on the agenda."
Doubt this would extend to the developers though, as they would surely need access to software development tools, e.g. an IDE, etc.
Google uses Ubuntu extensively; there are excellent coding tools in Ubuntu.
Of course, wanting to use google products will cause google to increase the number and power of web applications, chromeOS allows web apps to use client hardware, if I recall correctly.
*Face Palm* Seriously ?
How do you think the Linux Kernel is written do you think they use an IDE ? no its called vi or emacs and gcc....
Seriously that has to be the stupidest comment I have read.. Why do you need an IDE to code ? Windows is probably the _WORST_ platform to code on.. The developers are probably already developing using Linux and are probably reading your reply and laughing and mocking you right now..
I'm going to have to object on that one. Programming under windows is by no means enjoyable, not in the least. Limited control of system, especially diagnostics, most good free development tools are ported from the unix world, and major headaches with the whole mt, md, etc, etc builds that can't mix and match, subpar support for many many source control systems, gui easily becomes very non responsive during performance testing. I cannot for the life of me understand why people keep repeating that windows is so great for developers.
Maybe because we do use the right tools?
I develop for Windows and Unix systems, while it is true that Windows out of the box does not support many of the nice tools Unix seems to have, there are tons of tools to install and ease developers life.
True, many of them are commercial, but if you are developing for leaving what are a few euros, if they make your life easier.
Somehow I feel you don't have real Windows development experience.
If you are talking about doing development on windows, chances are you are talking about using visual studio. If you are talking about doing unix development on windows, I understand how that could suck.
His comment was in reference to how Chrome OS only provides a browser.
But thanks once again for providing links that are redundant when it comes to supporting your point.
Now here are a link for you:
