Why Richard Stallman Takes No Shine to Chrome

If anyone had doubts that Richard Stallman dislikes Google’s new Chrome OS, he laid them to rest in an interview with the Guardian Tuesday. The Chrome OS will push people into careless computing by forcing them to store their data in the cloud, said Stallman, who’s the founder and president of the Free Software Foundation. Further, users don’t have a legal right to their data if it’s stored on a company’s servers, Stallman suggested. His comments come just days after Google launched a preview of the Chrome OS in San Francisco.
