Google says the Cloud is our future

Google logoGoogle believes the arrival of Chrome OS heralds nothing less than a brave new world in which Windows and OSX-based machines have little future.

"[Of course], I think [such a scenario] depends on the user and the user's behavior. In the long term and the fullness of time [though], absolutely," Google product management director Caesar Sengupta told SearchEngineLand.

"[And yes], I think we will have failed if this [Cloud] doesn't become your default way of computing."

According to Sengupta, hundreds of millions of users already are comfortable with "living" on the Web.

"[So], for many of these users, [Chrome OS systems like Cr-48] will replace their machines immediately, especially as web apps get better," he said.

"This trend of people moving to the cloud is [obviously] very strong. There are only a few major applications that hold people off from moving, such as Outlook or Photoshop or iTunes. The Cloud versions are becoming better very quickly."

Sengupta added that Chrome OS will undoubtedly offer a "fantastic experience" for both early and mainstream Cloud adopters.

"Chrome OS gives them all they want from the Cloud but without the legacy issues of a traditional operating system.

"[For example], backups, what happens if your computer dies? Viruses or malware. Those are the [some of the things] we're trying to solve, a machine they can use and don't have to worry about."
