No it's actively encouraged to hate Google here, there is fire going in both ways but there's a lot more from MS fanboys to MS' rivals.
The only thing I've seen happen is that more people hate Google now compared to one or two years ago.

I picked up the Acer model for an upcoming two week vacation in Hawaii that I didn't want to drag my heavy and private information packed laptop to. With the ability to remote desktop in to both my fiance's and my laptop with the Chromebook even around the house I rarely sit down at my laptop anymore.
The battery life is quite good by comparison and since most of what I do is web based (and I don't hate Google) I'm far more impressed with it than I imagined I would be. I will be dual booting Ubuntu on it once I return and can tinker a bit more.
Yet in the end you're going to stick a full OS like Ubuntu on it. I'd say that says it all. I think at the end of the day even if it's good for most people that each of them will run into a situation at some point where they'll need a full OS to do some task and end up going back or switching to something else like a tablet.
