Although, Google didn’t disclose much information about its upcoming operating system Chrome, I gathered some information from different blog post and news articles and I would like to share them with you.
Chrome is based on Linux operating system, although, I am not sure what type of Linux it is going to be. Initially, only netbook users can install Chrome and later on it is going to be available for full featured PCs. The operating system is targeted to be released for open source community users by the end of this year. The software will be very useful for fast and secure web access. But, unfortunately, the users will not be able to use any client server apps, they have to be dependent on online tools like Google Docs and Microsoft Office on line.
Google’s new free OS will be available by second half of 2010 and the OS will be able to run on x86 and ARM processors. Google has partnership with Acer, Asus, Freescale, Hewlett-Packard, Lenovo, Qualcomm, Texas Instruments, and Toshiba who will help build Chrome OS for the platform. Netbook is a laptop device that is primarily used for the purpose of quick web browsing and emailing. All of the netbooks have Wi-fi connection to access to the internet.Filed under Email, Google, Open Source Platform, Operating System | Tags: ARM, Chrome, Google Docs, Internet, Linux, MS Office on line, Netbook, Web Surfing, Wi-Fi, X86 | Comment Below
