Earlier in the week in an interview with CNet, Gates said that Natal would be for more than just gaming. However, he also spoke about the Chrome OS and said that, without more details, it was hard to make an informed decision. "The more vague they are, the more interesting it is," he said, according to CNet.
That said, Gates did reiterate a point many of you have been making over the last two weeks: the Google OS is just another dressed up Linux OS. "There's many, many forms of Linux operating systems out there and packaged in different ways and booted in different ways," the Microsoft Chairman said.
All in all it seems both Gates and Ballmer are not worried about the Chrome OS. Do you think they're right to brush off competition so flippantly? Let us know in the comments below!
