Campbell: Google OS as a new netbook computer

,----[ Quote ]
| There is much afoot regarding netbooks, as 
| they continue to evolve and find their 
| place in the computer world.
| People criticize and laud netbooks in 
| seemingly equal proportions. Some say they 
| are inexpensive and provide just enough 
| processing power for the average user. 


Chrome OS gets faster Zero build

,----[ Quote ]
| Chromium hacker Hexxeh has released a 
| faster, USB-bootable build of Google's  
| Chrome OS called Chromium OS Zero. Meanwhile, 
| ArsTechnica interviewed Google's 
| Engineering Director for Chrome OS, Matthew 
| Papakipos, regarding the past and future of 
| Chrome OS.
| Hexxeh's final build of Chromium OS Zero 
| follows earlier, well-regarded releases of 
| versions including Chromium OS Diet and 
| Cherry. Based on the open source Linux 
| Chromium code that Google began to release 
| in late November, with the goal of 
| releasing a final Chrome OS for netbooks 
| later this year, Chromium OS Zero promises 
| major speed improvements "for many users," 
| according to Hexxeh's blog announcement.

Run Android on Your PC

| Today we are proud to announce a new 
| operating system, a port of Google's famous 
| Android platform for the x86 (32-bit) 
| architecture. Simply named Android-x86, 
| this Live CD Linux distribution is designed 
| mostly for the Eee PC netbooks, but can 
| also run on any other 32-bit (x86) 
| platform. The current stable version of 
| Android-x86 is based on Android 1.6 (Donut) 
| and it's powered by Linux kernel 2.6.29 
| with kernel mode-setting (or KMS for short) 
| enabled. It has support for the EXT3, EXT2, 
| NTFS and FAT32 filesystems, and can be run 
| directly from the CD (yes, no installation 
| required)! But, if you like it and you want 
| to install it on your hard drive or on a 
| USB stick, we have a short tutorial for you 
| at the end of the article.

Want That Early Chrome OS Build? You Got It.

,----[ Quote ]
| 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.


Huge anticipation for Google's Chrome OS

,----[ Quote ]
| A not inconsiderable 22 per cent of people
| suggested that they would download Chrome OS
| the moment they possibly could, so that they
| could try out Google's attempt at an
| operating system that fits in with cloud
| computing.
