Google ditches Windows on security concerns
In wild, but not shocking, news Google is phasing out support for Microsoft Windows on employee machines. This doesn't seem to be a public announcement so much as news sniffed out from employees. According to the FT article employees can choose the Mac OS or Linux (no mention of which version/flavor). They also discuss Chrome, although unlikely that engineers will be working on Chrome since it is supposed to be a web-OS, no? Don't they need apps, compilers, hard drive storage, etc? Lots to be seen in this story, but for now just looks like Google taking a jab at Microsoft. Nice jab.
