Will Dell Dump Microsoft for Google's Chrome Operating System?

,----[ Quote ]
| Google's (GOOG) Chrome operating system 
| will be locked in a market share war with 
| Microsoft's (MSFT) Windows OS when it's 
| released later this year. Microsoft has a 
| huge lead because it runs, by some 
| estimates, on 90% of the PCs sold around 
| the world. The success of Windows 7 may 
| help cement that advantage. But the tide 
| could be changing.
| Google and Dell (DELL) are discussing a 
| deal to have its Chrome OS put on on the PC 
| company's laptops. According to Reuters, 
| "We have to have a point of view on the 
| industry and technology direction two 
| years, three years down the road, so we 
| continuously work with Google on this," 
| Amit Midha, Dell's president for Greater 
| China and South Asia said.

| Many in the Ubuntu community are looking
| forward to the release of Ubuntu 10.10 this
| October. One reason, as youâll see here on
| a new Dell 14R, is the introduction of
| Ubuntu Light, which Canonical is working
| with OEMs to get pre-installed as a dual-
| boot option on Windows laptops â with the
| benefit being they can access popular
| productivity and communication programs
| like Google Chrome/Chromium, Skype, Totem
| Media Player, IM, etc. in about 7 seconds.
