Seems like Microsoft has gone panicky with the recent announcements from Google and the hype its causing. They are trying everyway to counter it and get over their nightmares. Chrome when it came as a browser itself, caused so much of trouble for the Microsoft people. But that was pretty ok. IE was never a trump card for MS in the market. Although I am a regular windows user, I never ever use IE. Its such a horrible terrible thing in every possible way.

When Google came in with chrome that was goddamn light(pops up the second u click it..) and with innovative features like the “Incognito window” (something that was very essential for my kinda ppl) they too fought back with IE8 where they called incognito as “in-private”..And guess what they came up with as a promo..well they came up with this..

That was such a pathetic ad that i cudnt even believe that was a product of MS. Infact this OMGIGP will catch u if u just use IE.

It was at this point Google came up with the idea of extending Chrome to an OS..an internet based OS. The first response from MS  to it was the usual one, mock at it. Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer was trying to belittle Chrome as just an “interesting” thing.”Who knows what this thing is? To me, the Chrome OS thing is highly interesting,” said Ballmer, choosing his words carefully and drawing more amusement from the largely pro-Microsoft crowd.”It won’t happen for a year and a half and they already announced an operating system,” he added, referring to Google’s Android system for smartphones.

Good one Mr.Ballmer, perhaps you should watch this video before making another comment.

Mr. Ballmer do you remember one of the comments thats pictured in that video that was actually made by you. May be in a couple of years that statement can be replaced with the one you just made.Ok now if you dont see Google as a competitor at all, then why did u just hit the panic button. You guys were running around announcing Microsoft Gazelle , a browser with a kernel funda, that is built for clouds. Well thats the same thing but even better what Google aims by Chrome OS. And what was that all of a sudden announcement for an online version of MS word for?And Office 2010 too…Because you know it well that Windows is the trump card. The rest of the story is dependant on the future of Windows. If MS lose the OS bussiness, then they are finished. So its absolutely necessary to fight off this threat. Doesnt matter if it takes to use a ‘Puking’ ad.
