Google Chrome OS Powered Netbooks

Last night Google announced that the company is taking a new direction with its Chrome project, and expanding Chrome beyond just being an optimized web browser, and into an entire operating system, Google Chrome Operating System.

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.

Google Chrome OS powered Netbooks on the market next year? I foresee lines of Google lovers camped out outside Bestbuy, Walmart or whichever stores Google plans on using for distribution.

Will you buy a Google Chrome OS powered netbook?

  1. Surely. I’m now using Asus eeepc 900 with eeebuntu OS. And most tasks are about working with gmail and google.docs – i believe that Google itselt could do working with such tasks better.

  2. I’m seriously considering doing Boot Camp for my Mac with Chrome OS once it comes out.

  3. I’d like a toolbar fro chrome… but will the OS crash on flash like chrome is doing all the time now?

    but.. i have been thinking about getting another laptop so i can do more at once.. i’d buy one.

  4. Well, I think it will not be suitable for developers or gamers. However, it might become a cheap SMB desktop OS alternative, or good for students.

  5. waiting for this, i think google will make it much better then ubuntu.

    i am working with gmail, google docs and other services and the operating system from google will do much better with own products.

    it is crazy, google now the biggest in the world informational agency, and if this system will became as popular as windows they will know everything about users.

  6. Seems like a piece of crap.
    I think that basing their operating system on Chrome should make it completely useless. Chrome is like a browser, without all of the things that make it good.
    What will this OS be? A computer without any useful functionality?
    Not Interested.

  7. Well I might consider it later on, but not out of the box. for example Google chrome is cool but no way would I trade in firefox for Chrome. I’m starting to like linux atm, but I want to see how Google’s new OS is first before I would jump right in with both feet.

    Wrong!

    Please reread Google’s post on Chrome OS again.

    Just to make things really clear:
    Google Chrome OS will be for netbooks AND desktop PCs.

  9. This is a GREAT IDEA! I don’t know if anybody remembers but Oracle, and others, talked about this many years ago. It’s nice to see it finally come to fruition.

    PS: If you go for it, quadruple check the reliability and speed of your Internet Connection :)

  10. Well first of all i want to used that operating system & if i found it as easy as Microsoft windows xp than only i can move ahead.

  11. I will try a Chrome OS, but I am a fanatic of Linux – Fedora it is free too and it is a very very useful OS. I use it as on my web server as on my notebook. It has a new version every a half year, and become better and better.
