The blogosphere has been singing both positive and negative tunes about Microsoft's latest offering in its long line of operating systems. Vista has been the talk of the town as of late, but there are still some of us who envision a world where more than one platform can thrive in the OS marketplace.
It’s that same mentality which inspires me to hope (and believe) that Google isn’t that far remove from attempting to challenge Windows for operating system superiority.
I’m not going to debate the fine points, however. I won’t give you my top ten reasons why Google will team with the makers of Ubuntu to release a Linux distribution (Title: Gubutnu) within the next twelve months. Those are predictions I simply don’t have the information or the desire to make right now.
