Google Co-Founder: Microsoft Windows is "Really Torturing Users"
Posted on May 12 2011 12:50 PM by xper in Internet

Sergey Brin, an outspoken Russian-American computer scientist, gained fame and glory as one of Google Inc.'s "big three". He co-founded the search firm with Larry Page, who recently took over for the departing Eric Schmidt at CEO.

In the wake of Google's unveil of Chrome OS (Operating System) PCs at its annual I/O developers conference, Mr. Brin unloaded on the world's leading operating systems maker, Microsoft Corp..

At a Chrome OS launch event he began friendly enough, stating, "I don't think there is anything inherently wrong with Windows. Windows 7 has some great security features."

From there, though, his critique of his competitor grew more pointed.

"With Microsoft, and other operating system vendors, I think the complexity of managing your computer is really torturing users. It's torturing everyone in this room. It's a flawed model fundamentally. Chromebooks are a new model that doesn't put the burden of managing the computer on yourself."

Mr. Brin's rhetoric seems more than a little confusing and contradictory.

Yeah, right.

Stop betting on the wrong horse (i.e. the dying netbook breed), and focus on Android.

They're trying real hard to sell their netbook + cloud solution, which involves a lot of data mining on their part. I don't see this succeeding anytime soon.
