A Less Personal Computer

,----[ Quote ]
| Chrome OS extends this strategy. It will be 
| a Web browser running on top of a 
| hardware-Âcontrolling Linux kernel, and not 
| a whole lot else. Chrome OS should take up 
| less than a gigabyte of your computer's 
| hard drive, and the operating system will 
| boot in seconds. It won't have a "Start" 
| button--it will just have the Google home 
| page, with links to your favorite Internet 
| applications. Panels will appear on the 
| side of the main window when you connect 
| the laptop to your digital camera or when 
| you find a new wireless network.

Google: Chrome OS netbooks should cost around Â300

,----[ Quote ]
| Although still scheduled to launch towards 
| the end of this year, there hasnât been 
| much in the way of news about Googleâs 
| Chrome OS for netbooks for a while. Google 
| CEO Eric Schmidt did let a few details slip 
| about the cloud-based operating system at a 
| recent conference though, including a re-
| iteration of the planed low price for the 
| hardware.


Samsung looks to quad-core processors and Chrome

,----[ Quote ]
| In Samsung's own vision, the main 
| technologies would be its own silicon plus 
| the Ubuntu Linux for notebooks, and 
| Google's Chrome browser/OS. This shows 
| Samsung signing up enthusiastically for the 
| search giant's concept of a 'cloudbook' - a 
| lightweight device heavily geared to web 
| access and streaming on the move. Google 
| will release its new Chrome OS later this 
| year.


Mobile Devices are Long-term Key for Chrome OS and Android

,----[ Quote ]
| Google CEO Eric Schmidt shed some light on 
| the company's plans for Chrome OS in 
| tablets and mobile devices at the 
| Atmosphere Cloud Computing Summit.
| Cloud computing is the cornerstone of 
| Chrome OS, as the platform runs entirely on 
| cloud servers and all user data is 
| automatically backed up to the same remote 
| server network.


Chrome OS kernel source code hints at ARM, Tegra 2 hardware

,----[ Quote ]
| Google's browser-centric Chrome OS hasn't 
| reached the market yet, but development is 
| progressing and the platform is attracting 
| the interest of a growing number of 
| hardware makers. Although the operating 
| system was principally designed for 
| netbooks, Google has also discussed some 
| opportunities for bringing it to other 
| kinds of devices, including ARM-based 
| smartbooks and tablets.



Parallels Officially Supports Google Chrome OS

,----[ Quote ]
| Thereâs also a bigger story here: Parallels
| provides the base software foundation for
| many VARs and software developers that are
| deploying SaaS (software as a service)
| applications. Now, that SaaS ecosystem may
| be more inclined to give Googleâs Chrome OS
| a look.


Google talks Chrome OS, HTML5, and the future of software

,----[ Quote ]
| I had done my best to sort out the why's
| and wherefore's of Google's first consumer
| OS effort in my initial launch coverage but
| I still had many questions about the past,
| present, and future of the project.

| EB: The way that we've thought about this
| for a while is if you read the Chrome OS
| blog post that we did in July, and you read
| the Chrome browser blog post that we did in
| September in 2008, they're very similar.
| They're essentially the same thing. And the
| reason is because when we were building
| Chrome the browser, we realized that
| everyone is spending their time online. So
| essentially we were trying to build
| something that mimics this operating system
| feelâthere's a task manager in Chrome, and
| that was one of the early additions to
| Chrome.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
