Beta... What does it mean?

The Beta game played by google... What does it mean to us? Will it make us all loyal and bound to its services and suddenly make its official release with service charges? Or is it trying to enter our desktop through WWW and capture us from the hold of Microsoft? Or is it trying to position itself as the No.1 Internet company by pushing Yahoo down the ladder ? Or will it create new market leaving all others, the MS, Yahoo, et al in tact?
Why it didn't come with a linux version for its messenger Google Talk or other softwares say Google Earth?
So are we going to have a monopoly of Google somewhere in the near future? The thought itself is threatening! See the importance I'm giving to google by the number of articles I have posted on it.

Google cannot rule the OS space unless it brings up its own OS. Since most of its apps r for windows & not for linux, google might suffer there. MS can do to any level to sabotage Google's growth if google keeps relying on Windows to promote its apps.

There's the bad and the good, villain and the hero, etc... Similarly, there's MS and others...

If MS shuts down, there will be someone else to take its place. So, its better to keep the known enemy alive...
