Google Launches Google Chrome OS and Manages Not to Say Cloud

Today Google launched a preview of the Google Chrome OS.  What is that exactly?  Watch the video below to get a better understanding.  One of the most impressive things was they did not say cloud in the entire 3+ minutes of this video.  They drew a cloud but they never said it.  I think they did a great job of talking about this in a light an humorous way that can speak to everyone with a base of technical knowledge.  It would have been so easy for them to talk overly technical about it – and use the hottest word in IT.  Cloud.  But they didn’t – nice work Google.    

Things are lining up for an even more epic battle between Microsoft and Google.  Between MS Windows and Google Chrome OS to MS SharePoint and Google Wave to Office and Google Docs.  I love competition – it brings the best products to the surface.
