During a question and answer session at the 25th anniversary celebration of MIT’s legendary Media Lab, Google CEO Eric Schmidt made some negative comments about Microsoft’s ever so popular operating system Windows 7.
As we all know, Google is currently working on Chrome OS, which is slated for a release towards the end of this year. Schmidt stated during the question and answer session that the goal of great technology is to get people to use computers less which ultimately results in more productivity.
However, Schmidt also added, “The hours I spend reprogramming my PC in Windows 7 is not a very good use of my time.” Schmidt went on to say, “Why I choose to do that in the first place is a problem with judgment.”
