Google suspends employee use of Windows OS

ZDNet - >Google has suspended internal use of Microsoft's Windows operating system amid security concerns related to the attack on its network late last year, according to a report. The Financial Times reported on Monday that Google has begun telling new employees that they are no longer able to request Windows PCs, giving them the choice of Mac or Linux systems. Google has long offered its employees their choice of work operating system but will no longer do so, The Financial Times said, after an attack on Windows and Internet Explorer 6 resulted in the theft of Google intellectual property, believed to be source code, late last year.
