Is Google Going To Defeat Microsoft?

It's quite obvious that the so called web 2.0 (and Open Source software) has changed a lot not only the way we use the Internet and PCs but the technology market too. Although I think that desktop applications aren't a thing of the past yet, the world is moving towards web-based programs and Google seems to be taking advantage of it and doing it right.

At least is the impression that I get after seeing Google as the great winner in a review of web-based applications, published yesterday in Forbes.com.

A thing worth to note is that Google promotes open source projects (through Google Summer of Code, for example) while Microsoft deny it. Is it Google's philosophy contributing to its position in the market. Google is a for-profit company, so I don't think they're doing such things for nothing.

On the other hand, an important part of the Microsoft's business is in traditional desktop-based OS and applications and maybe they're moving slow but sure.

What do you think?
