It is being widely reported that the search giant Google are removing Windows from its desktop PC’s in order to eliminate the risk of security breaches.

Google have around twenty thousand employees around the world, all of whom use or have access to computers, but now they will be given the choice of using a Linux based OS or switching to an Apple computer.

This brings up a question, why isn’t Google using its own OS Chrome?

Whatever way this is looked at, it is a serious blow to Microsoft, according to the software company, Google are using this in an attempt to bring on the Chrome operating system.

However, there are other businesses that are doing the same thing and the reason is security especially the hacker attacks from China.
