Google Chrome vs. Microsoft Windows

July 10, 2009

A Microsoft business client of Onsite Computer Services in New Orleans recently inquired about the Google Chrome Operating System and the possibility of avoiding Microsoft license fees in the near future.  Chrome’s release is planned for mid-2010 and it is not Google’s first operating system; however Microsoft’s operating systems are their main source of income and many allege Google is in for fierce competition from Microsoft.

Some contend the voluminous amount of drivers and devices that have to be supported with an operating system is a large barrier to success for Google in this arena.  An additional concern for Google is Microsoft’s huge customer support departments – Google is presently devoid of human customer service reps to staff the phone.

Microsoft generates 80% of its revenue from sales of its Windows Operating System and the Office Suite. Google receives 97% of its revenue from online advertising.  Both tech giants continue to attempt diversification and compete to attract each other’s market share:  Microsoft has Bing for search advertising, online services, and other businesses while Google has Google Apps, IM, Android, and photo editing software.

It’s anyone’s guess how this competition between the two tech behemoths will conclude.  Onsite believes all competition in a free, capitalistic society is healthy and generally for the benefit of consumers; however we don’t advise burning your Microsoft licenses, YET!
