"We're talking about what an OS is and developing it for the market as it
is today, rather than the market as it was when Windows was originally
developed," he added. "Today, everything is Web based. Before, people
weren't connected at this level, which leads to a whole new level of
security problems. There will have to be more security. [Google] has a lot
on their plate."

Dan Olds, an analyst at The Gabriel Consulting Group Inc., agrees that
Google probably will - or at least should - build in better security and
availability features, like automatic net backup of documents and better
spam and virus protection. But he also thinks Google will try to make an
obvious stand apart from Windows.

"As a netbook OS, Google Chrome will probably be quite a bit different
from what users are accustomed to with Windows," he added. "It should boot
much, much quicker and give users access to their most frequently used
apps, like email, much faster. If a user can be happy with the basics
supplied by Google Apps -- Gmail, word processing, spreadsheet, etc. --
and by other applications they can get over the Internet -- then the
Google OS might be a reasonable alternative."
