unfortunately many companies and agencies still use IE, because many other
companies develop apps that only run on IE so
people who buy the apps must use it. I work for such an agency, i don't
agree with it, but I like having a job and I must support it and therefore
have to use it.
Google does make a claim that they will build and OS with no
vulnerabilities. Like one of the blog post said, I think people are stuck on
the semantics of the wording. No one knows what the underlying code will do.
Is it possible to build such and OS? sure.
Are they gonna get it right the first time? I doubt. Will it be better than
any other option available now? mostly.
I assume they're going to use some form of nix for the underlying OS. Unless
they start from scratch and build their own
HAL and all the pieces that go into an OS, then there are going to be things
out of their control.
There are a lot of questions and variables that are going to be involved,
but surely in the end there will be an OS that is going to
be a lot different from anything we see today. I for one can't wait to see.
Have Mercy & Say Yeah
