Google Chrome OS Soon To Be Released
The rumors are true. Google is releasing a new operating system called Chrome OS and will be available in the second half of 2010.
The new operating system is targeting the netbook market. It is a very small, simple, and extremely fast operating system designed heavily for web surfers. Because it is created by Google, the operating system will come with most of Google’s services such as Gmail, Docs, and Calendar. It is Google’s goal to have a user on the web in a matter of seconds.
Google Chrome OS isn’t just for netbooks. The operating system can be installed on most all types of computers. And the great news is Google Chrome OS is going to be free. The question is if Google Chrome OS can put a dent in the OS market. Can Google OS compete against Microsoft or Apple?
It is nice to see another alternative operating system start to surface. It seems like most people who use Windows have trouble. Those who use Windows sometimes tend to try Linux. Linux is complicated to work with for inexperienced users. And then there is the group of Apple users. And will Apple, in my opinion, pretty much anyone that purchases an Apple computer never switches back.
So what is your opinion about Google Chrome OS? How well do you think this new OS will do? Can Google OS ever beat Apple OS X? Better yet, can Google OS become more popular than Windows itself?
