Is stripped user agent data pointing to a Google OS?

Here we go again. It seems like just yesterday we heard the first whispers of a Google desktop OS, and products like Chrome stoke suspicions that the Mountain View-based company is setting itself up to invade the PC. Although Google insists that it's focusing on the cloud, since Android was announced, the feasibility of a Google-branded desktop OS has certainly increased. Now, market research firm Net Applications is reporting that it has seen a third of the traffic from Google's employees with intentionally blocked identification strings. This could be a real indicator that the big G is hard at work on a desktop OS -- or just a sign that folks at Google don't care to share their OS of choice. Hopefully, we'll be hearing more sooner rather than later, but feel free to chime in with your Google global domination theories and rabid speculation in the comments. Read 

Josh's Verdict: Hmm, we already know Google uses a modified Linux version internally, so this isn't new.. or is it? We'll see. But then, who thought Google would create a browser? They were rumors. Google denied it. But Google Chrome was true. So we'll see. Patience, my friend, is a virtue.
