used some windows today. well, actualy ran firefox, X11 and putty  on it...

it simply doesn't scale well to user more than 5 windows at the sam ime.

maybe thats the reason why they made it with such a poor multitasking ability...

In the late 90'ies I drowned wintendos with my simple multitasking behaviour...

I wonder, and without bashing, what will become of Microsoft in the future
-
Google become the next Microsoft?

Google is the next microsoft.
What's not microsoft about that?
them.
They're the name everybody thinks of when you think of the biggest mover in the sector for the past bunch of years. They are a huge goliath of a company. They are trying to take over desktop application, they are trying to take over the browser, so they can do more stuff on your desktop (if they were truly not evil they'd have helped an existing product).
They make more money than anybody else in their market.
I rather thought everybody figured they were already the next microsoft.
IBM is like britian, once on top and now happily living life as a very successful has been.

Please cite examples of Google's anticompetitive behavior. Simply having big ambitions and being the leader in search does not make them Microsoft-like.

Depends which part of ms you're talking about. They are like microsoft in their bigness, in their dominance of markets, in their scaring-people-out-of-similar-markets-because-there's-no-point-in-trying-to-compete-ness.
Maybe saying google is the next microsoft is a big too much, but they're in a similar position to microsofts historical position.

Ah, but Google actually has competitors. And unlike Microsoft's competitors, Google's competitors are inferior.

Fair enough. So if google is really better at everything it tries to do, is it okay that they effectivly push everybody else out of the market?
If so, then what's the difference.

It's okay to have a monopoly if it's a 'good monopoly' (with the added bonus that they tell us they're not evil)?

It's an issue of anti-competition, I think.

Microsoft leveraged their monopoly to prevent others from participating int he operating system space by preventing vendors from selling any operating system but theirs (in a variety of ways).

Consider what is good for the consumer: anti-competitive practices that prevent any hope of improving a product line at all, or a competition waged entirely on whether or not the merits of the product hold up to user demand?

It's okay because somebody who actually has a better idea than Google could push them out of the market. At least if they execute it well.

...except that Microsoft was pretty much handed their market share on a plate (by a naive IBM in 1981), and merely played a good game of maintaining lock-in from generation to generation using anti-competitive tactics. Google *earned* their market share with a superior product.
