+ - Sergey Brin: Windows is "torturing users"->

Submitted by

jbrodkin writes "Google created Chrome OS because Windows is "torturing users," Google co-founder Sergey Brin says. Only about 20% of Google employees use Windows, with the rest on Mac and Linux, and Brin hopes that by next year nearly all Googlers will be using Chromebooks. "With Microsoft, and other operating system vendors, I think the complexity of managing your computer is really torturing users," Brin told reporters at Google I/O. "It's torturing everyone in this room. It's a flawed model fundamentally. Chromebooks are a new model that doesn't put the burden of managing the computer on yourself." Google claims 75% of business users could be moved from Windows computers to Chrome laptops."
