I’ve been giving Google Pack some thought. Could the initial goal of making Google Pack available for download, not be the ultimate goal?

Earlier this week, we heard rumors that Google may announce a Google PC, that turned out to be untrue, with Google stating

“…we have a number of PC partners who serve their markets exceedingly well and we see no need to enter this market; we would rather partner with great companies.”

Maybe this quote, and the initial rumor, are indicators of what Google may ultimately have planned for Google Pack. My guess is that Google may aim to encourage its “PC partners” to start offering Google Pack pre-installed on your next computer. Either running alongside typical Microsoft offerings or totally replacing them.

This would make a whole lot more sense than just making a bunch of products available for download. As a download, Google Pack may not be successful – with many computer users preferring to go with the pre-installed software instead. Google could really attack Microsoft by having Google Pack come pre-installed on your next Dell, IBM or HP computer.

C’est possible?

  • why not? google has to keep growing. that’s their motto!
