    Default Google Chrome OS

    They've finally done it, they've created an Open-sourced Operating System.


    Official Google Blog: Introducing the Google Chrome OS




    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.

    Isn't Linux open source?

    Yes, Linux is indeed Open-sourced. I meant, Google does everything already, so naturally an OS was next.

    Probably linux based with a GUI in CHROME fasion. It will be used to steal the users info for GOOGLES EVIL PLAN and MARKETING proceedures.

    actually it is Linux kernel based. Linux Rules!!!! Google is a major supporter of Linux and all of their servers are Linux Based as well. Google wouldn't be around if it wasn't for Open Source.

    Ironically The Google chrome browser is not available for Linux yet. Although there is a ported version of this browser for Linux

    Also if this takes off it will be a godsend for Linux as it would force hardware vendors to start developing drivers for the Linux kernel.

    Am I the only one thats unimpressed? I mean, big deal, its linux. I would have liked to have seen Google develop their own OS from the ground up, not a Google wrapper on linux.
    And thats how you get ants!

    Do you really expect Google to come up with a whole new OS in 2 years without using the kernel from another OS? This OS is along the lines of EyeOS which is a browser based OS that sits on the Linux Kernel.
    I am not impressed with the chrome interface but will be happy if it pushes developers to start developing Linux drivers for hardware.

    But you can use the philosophy why re-invent the wheel, when it has already been invented? Linux is the most stable OS out on the market right now and with the help of the NSA the most Secure. the only part Linux is lacking is the User Interface which is drastically getting better and better.

    Yes

    Yeah. Apple took that approach with OSX and OpenBSD. It has worked out just fine for them. That doesn't really mean it's going to take off for Google like it did for Apple.

    Linux is the most stable OS out on the market right now and with the help of the NSA the most Secure.
    Agreed.

    the only part Linux is lacking is the User Interface which is drastically getting better and better.
    Respectfully disagree. GUI interfaces such as Gnome and KDE are very close to being up to speed now with the functions that Windows and OSX offer. What Linux lacks is support from software developers. If the software that I regularly use was available for Linux I would only be using a Linux system. Open source alternatives such as Gimp, OpenOffice, and Dia are not viable solutions for professional results. I know, Linux is open source and so are the applications built for it... but until commercial developers start distributing applications for Linux, I don't see it being much of a game player when it comes to desktop systems. Let's not forget the gaming industry as well.

    My hope is that Google's flavor will change that.

    PS: I have used Wine. I prefer to run my applications native.
