Internet search leader Google is to announce the launch of its own budget priced personal computer that will run on a Linux-based operating system and could be sold in conjunction with Wal-Mart, the Los Angeles Times reported last night (Thailand time). The machine, dubbed Google Cube, could present a serious challenge to software giant Microsoft whose Windows operating system currently runs some 90 per cent of the world"s personal computers. Though previous attempts to launch cheap network-based computers have failed, analysts believe that Google"s stellar brand, plus its deep pockets and expertise at building web applications, could give it a chance against the world"s biggest software company. The report said the new computer could be announced as early as Friday when Google co-founder Larry Page is due to address the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
