Google Chrome OS


In a direct attack on Microsoft's Windows Operating System (OS), installed in over 90% of the world’s personal computers
(PCs), rival Google has announced its own OS, Google Chrome, to be commercially available from the second half of 2010. Initially, Google Chrome OS will be for netbooks, the low-cost computers
optimised for internet surfing and other web applications.

The Chrome OS is expected to work well with many of the company’s popular software applications such as Gmail, Google Calendar and Google Maps. It will be fast and lightweight, enabling users to access the web in a few seconds, Google said. The new OS is based on open-source Linux code, which allows third-party developers to design compatible applications.

Microsoft India declined to comment on the development, while Google India’s spokesperson said that at present the company cannot comment beyond what is on the Google blog, posted by Sundar Pichai, Google’s VP for product management, and Linus Upson, engineering director.

The blog noted, “The operating systems that browsers run on were designed in an era where there was no web. So today, we’re announcing a new project that’s a natural extension of Google Chrome (the browser launched in 2008) — the Google
Chrome Operating System. It’s our attempt to rethink what operating systems should be.
