This is the most exciting rumor I’ve heard in a while. There has been talk of a Google OS for a while, and if Google is seriously considering this, why not buy the runner-up company with the technically superior OS? And considering how Google makes everything they buy available for free, could this mean free OSX on non-mac PCs? Where would that leave Apple’s own PC hardware offerings? And the iPod?
I hope there’s truth to this rumor. A move like this could really stir things up, which is always a good thing ;).
