Microsoft has been the undisputed leader for operating systems with around a 90% odd market share. But with Google announcing the Chrome OS, an open source, lightweight operating system that will initially be targeted at netbooks, many quickly want to believe that it will be the terminal blow to Microsoft.
Different people are reacting differently to Chrome OS’s news!

While it may be too early to react or over-react, consumers will, for sure, welcome Googles challenge to Microsoft. But success of Chrome OS, will among other things depend on, how many will want their software and personal data to reside on the internet rather than their personal computers. Security & Privacy are other factors which may haunt Google Chrome OS.
