Google Bans Microsoft For Being Microsoft

All the noise around security concerns is just that. Noise. And if a company with the technology prowess of Google can’t get it’s security act together we all have something to be worried about – especially given the amount of our data they have.

While the rationale that Windows is much more broadly distributed than other operating systems, and therefore more susceptible and attractive to attack – holds true for the rest of us, that it holds true for Google is nuts. They are just a big, juicy target period.

But by framing it as a security driven decision, they contribute to the mythology (and some of the reality) surrounding Windows security. But come on, Google competes more with Microsoft every day.

News flash: Google bans Bing from its computers. Must credit FT. Picture on Bing home page is distracting to G engineers.
