Google OS or Not?

Talking of Google going to head-to-head with Microsoft yesterday, Richard MacManus and Emre Sokullu put forward three possible options of what the Googleplex might do:

  • A web based desktop (i.e. operating system)
  • A full featured Linux distribution
  • A lightweight Linux distro and/or BIOS

Richard and Emre conclude that we might see something within the next 6 months... but, not everyone agrees - Robert Scoble thinks they've been drinking something :-) and responds:

"Why would Google want the hell of doing an OS? They are having a much better time just selling ads on top. And they will continue to be successful at doing that, no matter what Bill Gates says."

Thanks, Robert. There really isn't much else to say is there?
