Security concerns prompt Google to switch from Windows to Mac - Page 3

What does this say about Chrome OS if it is true? It says Chrome OS can't do regular business computing. I've seen the demo's of Chrome OS and it seemed to work fine. It might be buggy right now but it could do word processing and e-mail. What specialized tasks do the Google business people do that requires OS X that can't be done with Chrome OS? I'm curious.

It says nothing about Chrome OS. That's in beta. And it isn't really designed or optimized to serve the enterprise crowd.

Despite what AI forumers think, there's no hate war on at Google. They just don't see eye-to-eye on some issues. I am willing to bet that most Google employees (being of that creative, tech-wise type) probably favour and use macs heavily. I doubt any of them harbour such an aversion to Apple that they wouldn't use Apple products. To most of them it's all just business and healthy competition.

One thing that's interesting, is that we'll now find out how secure OS X truly is. The last time around, the PLA's Second and/or Third Departments did such a good job, Google needed the NSA's help to fix the problem (it's too bad the conspiracy nuts see this as a privacy issue). Let's see how the Chinese hackers fare against OS X.

Are you at least intrigued at the possibility of OS X finally getting tested and pushed to the same level as Windows?

Apparently, you haven't watched the keynote. It's quite clear in that keynote, that Gundothra was referring to future of mobile devices.

Mac OS X applications that can use Kerberos include Safari

I note that you've been consistently misspelling Kerberos as Kerberose.
That's ironic as usernames and passwords need to be correctly spelt for Kerberos to work.
