Google Chrome OS

Google Chrome OS – Chromium

Google Chrome OS is an open source operating system designed by Google to work exclusively with web applications. Announced on July 7, 2009, Chrome OS is set to have a publicly available stable release during the second half of 2010. The operating system is based on Linux and targets specifically designed hardware. The user interface takes a minimalist approach, resembling that of the Chrome web browser. Because the browser will be the only application residing on the device, Google Chrome OS is aimed at users who spend most of their computer time on the Internet.
Few days back, I got the Developer build of Google’s new operating system and so tried that on a virtual machine.

Simpler and faster boot up.

It’s focussed on netbooks and i hope the cybercafe’s will also benefit from this OS if it has good LAN networking capabilities.

Note : This is just a Developer build and its not yet time for a review. So now it is nothing more than a browser. Not an OS with file manipulation abilities.

Syshacks rocks.(This is my second home)
