Another news from Google and this time, they’re not just staying on the web. Rumors have been going on about an operating system from the giant company and now it’s confirmed!
Google has announced last Tuesday night in its blog that there will be an operating system based on Google’s browser, Chrome soon, which was released to the public December 11 of last year.
This OS will be carried by lower-end PCs more known to the public as Netbooks and will be included in the second half of 2010. Manufacturers of Netbooks haven’t been revealed though. This open-source project will be run under the covers by Linux.
This move by Google shows how serious they are with their business. “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,” Sundar Pichai, vice president of product management, and Linus Upson, engineering director has both said in the blog post.
Google’s browser is created with a “minimal design with sophisticated technology”, makes you curious about what the OS would look like eh?
Something tells me Microsoft will be making a run for its money soon now!
