Google PC

Some sources reveal that Google is in talks with Wal-Mart to sell a Google PC. This low cost PC could revolutionise the industry and slowly drive Microsoft out of business. If there is such a product it would be announced on Friday when Larry Page, one of the co-founders of Google, discusses it during his keynote speech at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. If there is a Google PC than it would operate on Google's own operating system. Google has a long history of making low cost PCs since Google essentially runs off of a network of PCs that are built at Google. They have been doing this ever since it started in the late 90s when Sergey Brin and Larry Page hand assembled the first computers that powered Google at Stanford University.

If Google begins selling PC's I can almost guarantee they will NOT run 'Google's own operating system.' They will most liekly run a flavor of *Nix, whether it be Linux based (probably a variant of Debian or Ubuntu) or BSD based (like Darwin and Mac OS X).

Of course, the flavor of *Nix will be heavily customized with Google themed interface and Google programs ported to *Nix.
