Google Chrome Operating System

google-chrome os logoHere is astonishing news I came across today at Google Official Blog:

We’re announcing a new project that’s a natural extension of Google Chrome — the Google Chrome Operating System. It’s our attempt to re-think what operating systems should be.

Google Chrome OS is an open source, lightweight operating system that will initially be targeted at netbooks. Later this year we will open-source its code, and netbooks running Google Chrome OS will be available for consumers in the second half of 2010. Because we’re already talking to partners about the project, and we’ll soon be working with the open source community, we wanted to share our vision now so everyone understands what we are trying to achieve.

The software architecture is simple — Google Chrome running within a new windowing system on top of a Linux kernel.

  1. Google is NOT a company I am fond of… I mean they are a VERY big company now and really… TOO BIG for their own good!

    Google has become known as a 'spy-happy' company by the intelligent, computer literate and know that Google is one company to stay AWAY from, Free or Not!

    They have hired individuals who make their living as a spy in governmental agencies and the likes to help them in their efforts of spying on us.

    In fact, that is what their Google toolbar is all about! It digs in to your info on your computer and tracks just about everything you do online. Google also NEVER DELETES ANYTHING anymore and keeps all data they ever collect on you or anyone.

    CAN YOU IMAGINE WHAT KIND OF POWER GOOGLE WILL HAVE WHEN MANY FOLKS DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL THEIR Operating System????!!!

    WOW!!!

    People… come on… DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH!!! As my father always told me as a kid, THINK before your act!!!

    Now-a-days, I think, research and then act accordingly.

    If you need to respond to something immediately, go with your gut feeling, but make sure you are reading it correctly by practising using it on all your decisions.

    Google CHURNS MY guts!!!

    Good Luck in whatever you choose to do!!
