Has Microsoft finally gained the upper hand over Google with the launch of Windows Vista? Is this the last we will see of Google search, as the Redmond Company's latest operating system will be increasingly adopted eroding the
market supremacy of Windows XP? Will the Mountain View search giant be ostracized from the Windows Vista desktop? Well, one analyst seems to think so.
According to Global Equities Research analyst Trip Chowdhry, Microsoft has dealt itself a winning card in its search face-off with Google. Chowdhry revealed that Google has been loosing users because of the search capabilities introduced in Windows Vista. Microsoft is still lagging behind Google as far as Internet search goes, but the Redmond Company is allegedly winning back the desktop.
Apparently hard core users of Google Desktop are gearing toward the default search in Vista instead of continuing to use the desktop search product from the Mountain View Company. Chowdhry claims that he has conducted a survey among Windows Vista users and the conclusions of the research point to the fact that the operating system's search is preferred to that offered by Google.
The conclusion provided by Chowdhry seems superficial to say the least. The analyst failed to reveal additional details about the survey outside the fact that “many” of the ex-Google Desktop users have turned to Windows Vista search. Many? While Vista has revolutionized the Windows search delivering an experience far superior than anything that Microsoft has ever managed before in this field, Chowdhry's survey has to be received at least with a healthy degree of circumspection.
