Google, Windows to be Separated?
Apparently, Google had enough of the operating system of Microsoft’s Windows. Google is said to be suspending internal use of the OS in the light of security concerns related to the attack on its network late last year.
Recently, new hires are given the option of using Apple’s Mac computers or PCs running the Linux operating system.
According to the Financial Times, some new hires were still being allowed to install Windows on their laptops in early January, but it was not an option for their desktop computers.
“Windows is known for being more vulnerable to attacks by hackers and more susceptible to computer viruses than other operating systems,” said the Financial Times report. “The greater number of attacks on Windows has much to do with its prevalence, which has made it a bigger target for attackers.”
