    Look, you seem like a smart guy, but you really need to get out of that Google bubble.

    • Windows existed before Chrome OS
    • IE existed before Chrome Browser
    • Office existed before Google's Web Apps
    • and when it comes to mobile, yes, Windows Mobile existed long before Android

    Search is one of very few instances of this happening the other way around.

    Eric Schmidt, the previous CEO of Google, started his career at Sun Microsystems, a company fully devoted to competing with MS. Everything they did was aimed at competing with MS on their turf. Eric Schmidt brought that mind-set along with him when he arrived at Google.
    I meant to say domains where Google actually makes money - yes, ChromeOS/Chrome and Docs/Drive are not capable of competing with MS' offerings. My point was, that you say they were set up from the outset to destroy MS and I don't see that to be true. When they started, they just had Search and MS had nothing much in the online space. I really doubt that they had a long-term plan to get into productivity apps, mobile and operating systems. That just seems really crazy.
