Google Chrome OS; Taking the “P” Out of Your Current POS Computer



It’s going to be a whole year before consumers get their hands on Google’s Chrome OS, but developers were given early access to the project, so they can prepare for the launch.

There’s not much "marketing" in this announcement, but it’s Google and it’s big, so we thought you’d like to know about it.

Those with a passing interest will find the video below to sufficient to explain what’s coming:

Those that want more details can head over to TechCrunch.

Those that want to the details from the perspective of a Google employee should head to Matt Cutts’ blog.

That’s all!

    … that’s the sort of thing that’s a good idea for some computers (netbooks, possibly many laptops) but what about all the stuff you do on your computer, maybe less of the time, that you DO need or want programs for? Like graphic design (personally)? Video editing?

    What would be great is an alteration to OSes that allows you to use the internet right away and then loads everything else in the background afterwards when you don’t need it to happen as quickly.

    But I did like that video. Er, to make this slightly marketing related.

    I would love to know what google are getting out of this? sensitive data about users and their online habits maybe? i would imagine that would be worth quite a bit to advertisers.

    Well, there is certainly room for competition there. I wonder why they’re keeping the same name for their browser and future OS though?
