Google Phasing Out Windows Internally?
A report by the Financial Times says that Google is phasing out the internal use of the Windows OS, for the most part. The reason - security. Google has been even more conscious of it since the GMail attacks in January. Laptops are still allowed to have Windows, and some company veterans have been given special permission to keep using Windows, but the FT quotes one Googler saying that to get a Windows machine "now requires CIO approval." Certainly, those testing Google software for Windows are allowed to use Windows machines as well. If this turns out to be true, it will be a significant business loss for Microsoft.
