Google stops using the Windows Operating System

Google is planning to end the use of the internal use of Microsoft’s ubiquitous Windows Operating System because of security concerns, according to several employees of Google. The plan to move to other Operating Systems has begun earlier January as the Chinese Google’s operation has been hacked. Therefore, Google is very keen to put an end of using the Windows Operating System that employs more than 10,000 workers internationally.
Moreover,     the employees say it is also an effort in order to run the Company on its own products comprising its forthcoming Chrome Operating System that gets ready to compete with Windows.

Most of these efforts are to run things on Google product and to run them on Chrome, FT.com says. However, it is a boom to make it more attractive target for Malware writers and hackers. At the same time, the Mac OS X or a Linux isn’t more secure than the Windows Operating System.
