Google Shows Commitment to Open Systems and Software

Yesterday, Google's Senior Vice President of Product Management Jonathan Rosenberg laid out the company's allegiance to open standards, systems and software, but can the software giant deliver.

"We believe that open is the only way for this to have the broadest impact for the most people," Rosenberg blogged.

"Open will win. It will on the Internet and will then cascade across many walks of life: The future of government is transparency. The future of commerce is information symmetry. The future of culture is freedom. The future of science and medicine is collaboration. The future of entertainment is participation. Each of these futures depends on an open Internet."

But does Google mean what they say, and Can they deliver on their commitment to open technology? That's what ZDNet's Editor in Chief Larry Dignan wants to know.

"If Google navigates open systems faster and better than anyone else, knits together a series of open projects — Android, Wave and Chrome," Dignan said, "it could create a de facto closed system in total."
