Google Bets $π Million on Chrome OS

"We believe these larger rewards reflect the additional challenge involved with tackling the security defenses of Chrome OS, compared to traditional operating systems"
see Google offers $3.14159 MILLION in prizes for hacking Chrome OS • The Register.

That’s confidence! Google is offering $millions in prizes for cracks of their OS. I wouldn’t bet that much on anything except M$’s eventual/continuing decline in the market for client OS. Thanks, Google. Who says “They don’t give back.”?

    Microsoft offers thousands for information leading to those who have already compromised their OS. That’s the difference between Microsoft and Google. Microsoft has conceded defeat. Not a day goes by where somebody demonstrates anew that you can break into Microsoft’s OS and cause havoc.
