Is Steve Ballmer Worried?

A few days back, Google announced an operating system named Google Chrome OS, which will be released in the second part of year 2010. It is interesting to know that the operating system is mainly targeted for the netbooks, which are still to be accepted by the masses. I mean, in America and Europe, they might be popular but with the rest of the world, they are not so popular as of now. With this announcement, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer just laughed it off…was it because he does not plan to take this OS very seriously or he is just going insane with the announcement….?

Here are a few comments that were made by Steve Ballmer:

“Who knows what this thing is? To me, the Chrome OS thing is highly interesting,”

“It won’t happen for a year and a half and they already announced an operating system,” – Steve Ballmer was referring to the Google’s Android system.

“I don’t know if they can’t make up their mind or what the problem is over there, but the last time I checked, you don’t need two client operating systems,” said Ballmer. “It’s good to have one.”

Steve Ballmer, who is known to hate Google to his wits, must be worried with this announcement. He is trying to be funny in his remarks made at a public conference but who knows with the netbooks replacing the PCs and the laptops in near future, Google Chrome OS does become the OS of the future…if this happens, I am just wondering what Steve Ballmer would say at that time…
