Five Web-Centric Alternatives to Google Chrome OS

| Despite Googleâs move into the operating 
| system (OS) space, the idea of a primarily 
| cloud-centric OS is nothing revolutionary; the 
| earliest examples date back to 1999. And 
| although numerous other attempts at developing 
| Web-centric OSesn none up to this point have 
| truly broken into the mainstream. But some 
| current offerings present welcome alternatives 
| to mainstream operating systems, packing in 
| useful features and making it easier to access 
| your online content.

| The operating system will essentially be your
| Google Chrome browser and little else. Any
| data you need to save will be held on Google's

| happy with this arrangement ?. I expect that
| when you first load up the new OS or very soon
| thereafter, you will be asked to tick a box
| agreeing to their terms before you can proceed
| further in setting up your account. This is
| the bit where you will sign your digital life
| away to an organisation you will have to place
| your total trust in.

| Frederickson has placed the files he downloaded
| a few days ago on a Rapidshare account for
| anyone to access. You can find them here.
| Will Google be pleased about this? Probably not,
| considering they removed the files from the
| Chromium folder shortly after our post. But
| whatever, it's open source, yo.
