Google: The Operating System!

Post by Kenny on Wed Jul 08, 2009 9:54 pm

Google is developing an operating system (OS) for personal computers, in a direct challenge to Microsoft's Windows. Google Chrome OS will be aimed initially at small, low-cost laptop, but will eventually be used on PCs as well. Google said netbooks with Chrome OS could be on sale by the middle of 2010.

They're designing the OS to be fast and lightweight, to start up and get you onto the web in a few seconds. the company wrote on their blog "the operating systems that browsers run on were designed in an era where there was no web" and that this OS is "our attempt to re-think what operating systems should be".



To that end, the search giant said the new OS would go back to basics.

"We are completely redesigning the underlying security architecture of the OS so that users don't have to deal with viruses, malware and security updates."

Sounds impressive as the announcement could dramatically change the market for operating systems, especially for Microsoft, the biggest player with around 90% share. This is the first time we have had a truly competitive OS on the market in years. This is potentially disruptive and is the first real attempt by anyone to go after Microsoft.

Google is coming at this fresh and, because it is based on a set of services that reside on the web, it is the first really post web operating system, designed from the ground up, and reconceived for a web world. We are now at the start of Web 2.0 and developing OS which based around the internet can mean more reliable and security.

It seems to me that Google's major goal is to take Microsoft out, to systematically destroy their hold on the market. This is Google dropping the mother of all bombs on its rival, Microsoft. All we want to know is, will be it play games? And if not, why not?

it has some more publicity to it then most linu based distro's but it isn't going to be a good competition till it either becomes a fashion OS (apple's mac) or supports everything from windows, games, msn messenger, support for mobile phones etc
