Google's Chrome OS: The Web is the computer

| Finally, users don't need to wait for Google to get a simple, secure, 
| open-source, Web-centric operating system. The versions of Linux shipping on 
| many netbooks already match most of this description.  
| Want to turn a Linux netbook into a Chrome look-alike? Set its Firefox 
| browser to run on startup in full-screen mode, then lock out access to every 
| other application on the netbook.  


Google is not going to have its way.

| The marketing agent, that is Google, had to share the cut with the data 
| provider who was providing the content to the people. What if there was a way 
| to not share the cut with the provider of the content? Yes there is a simple 
| way - if you become the provider of the content. This is what Google tried to 
| do next and is still in the process of trying.    
| Google Groups, GMail, Google Docs, Google Calendar, YouTube, Google Maps, 
| Orkut, Blogger, are all attempts by Google to become THE place to keep your 
| content if you indeed want to store content publicly. The deal they offered 
| to the public was that they would store everybody's content for free.   


Microsoft to Bundle Firefox and Chrome with Windows?

| In its effort to detangle itself from the ongoing proceedings of the European 
| Union antitrust case, it seems Microsoft is offering to include rival web 
| browsers in the Windows OS. Revealed in a statement  by the European 
| Commission, Microsoft offered to give consumers a choice of browser 
| installation through a browser ballot screen. New computer owners running 
| Windows may get a chance to choose their browsers form a variety of software 
| makers.      



Researcher: Chrome to boost Atom to ARM switch in netbooks

,----[ Quote ]
| LONDON — Technology changes, including the introudction of the Chrome
| OS, will undermine Atom's grip on the netbook market during a
| recessionary time when people don't want, and can't afford, a second
| laptop just to carry around say market researchers, The Information Network.
| While Intel's Atom holds more than an 80 percent share of the
| 23.5-million netbooks sold in 2009 the ARM processor will to gain a 55
| percent market share of the 96.0 million netbooks sold in 2012,
| according to researchers.
| "We see two technology factors converging with the poor macroeconomic
| situation that will create a market for ARM - the release of the
| Cortex-9 microarchitecture and the emergence of cloud computing," said
| Dr. Robert Castellano, president of The Information Network (New
| Tripoli, PA). "Chrome OS is the first operating system built with cloud
| computing in mind."
