Google dumps Windows due to security risks

By Tim Quax on 01 june 2010

Google started phasing out all Windows systems that are being used by the company in january. The search engine supposedly came to this conclusion after the chinese hack attempts.

The british newspaper The Financial Times has enquired from several Google employees that Google is phasing Windows out of it's internal OS repertoire. The reason would be insufficient security of the OS'es from Microsoft. The Chinese hack attacks would be the direct cause of this all-out ban.

Since then a large part of the Google employees have migrated to Mac OSX. New employees get to choose between a Linux distro or a Mac with OSX.

I say; go dudes! No longer will we accept insufficient code structures, leading to crap like instable GUI's fused with kernels or ridiculous security issues. Wooo!
