Google's Chrome OS Empty
PostSubject: Google's Chrome OS   Google's Chrome OS Empty26th August 2009, 15:18

It's been an exciting nine months since google launched the Google Chrome browser. Already, over 30 million people use it regularly. Google designed Google Chrome
for people who live on the web — searching for information, checking
email, catching up on the news, shopping or just staying in touch with
friends. However, 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 Google
Chrome Operating System. It's our attempt to re-think what operating
systems should be.

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.

Speed, simplicity and security are the key
aspects of Google Chrome OS. We're designing the OS to be fast and
lightweight, to start up and get you onto the web in a few seconds. The
user interface is minimal to stay out of your way, and most of the user
experience takes place on the web. And as we did for the Google Chrome
browser, we are going back to the basics and completely redesigning the
underlying security architecture of the OS so that users don't have to
deal with viruses, malware and security updates. It should just work.

Chrome OS will run on both x86 as well as ARM chips and we are working
with multiple OEMs to bring a number of netbooks to market next year.
The software architecture is simple — Google Chrome running within a
new windowing system on top of a Linux kernel. For application
developers, the web is the platform. All web-based applications will
automatically work and new applications can be written using your
favorite web technologies. And of course, these apps will run not only
on Google Chrome OS, but on any standards-based browser on Windows, Mac
and Linux thereby giving developers the largest user base of any

Google Chrome OS is a new project, separate from
Android. Android was designed from the beginning to work across a
variety of devices from phones to set-top boxes to netbooks. Google
Chrome OS is being created for people who spend most of their time on
the web, and is being designed to power computers ranging from small
netbooks to full-size desktop systems. While there are areas where
Google Chrome OS and Android overlap, we believe choice will drive
innovation for the benefit of everyone, including Google.

hear a lot from our users and their message is clear — computers need
to get better. People want to get to their email instantly, without
wasting time waiting for their computers to boot and browsers to start
up. They want their computers to always run as fast as when they first
bought them. They want their data to be accessible to them wherever
they are and not have to worry about losing their computer or
forgetting to back up files. Even more importantly, they don't want to
spend hours configuring their computers to work with every new piece of
hardware, or have to worry about constant software updates. And any
time our users have a better computing experience, Google benefits as
well by having happier users who are more likely to spend time on the

We have a lot of work to do, and we're definitely
going to need a lot of help from the open source community to
accomplish this vision. We're excited for what's to come and we hope
you are too. Stay tuned for more updates in the fall and have a great

study hard drink later
