"In the last month or two, there's been a lot of buzz in the
blogosphere about a possible Google OS powering netbooks. It
started back when Net Applications reported that a full third of
Google employees appeared to be running an operating system whose
identity is hidden from traffic monitors.
"Given that Net Applications can monitor pretty much every known
operating system, the rumors began to fly: The operating system was
an internally developed Google one. And because Google has an
operating system for phones, called Android, the rumor mill had it
that the operating system would be based on Android."
