Google heats up native code for Chrome OS

,----[ Quote ]
| The SDK includes a compiler based on GCC 
| (GNU Compiler Collection) for creating 
| x86-32 or x86-64 binaries from C or C++ 
| source code, and you'll find ports of 
| popular open source projects like zlib, 
| Lua, and libjpeg.


Ubuntu Netbook Edition 10.10 might ditch Firefox for Chrome


Ubuntu Netbook Edition 10.10 could replace Firefox with Google Chrome

,----[ Quote ]
| We already knew that Canonical was 
| planning to overhaul the user interface 
| for the next version of Ubuntu Netbook 
| Remix â the version of Ubuntu Linux 
| optimized for laptops with small screens 
| and low power processors. But now it looks 
| like Ubuntu Netbook Edition 10.10 could 
| also come with some new default 
| applications.


Ubuntu Netbook Edition dropping Firefox for Chromium?


Chrome OS will represent a milestone for Google


Test Flights Into the Google Cloud

,----[ Quote ]
| These people are downloading home-brewed 
| versions of the operating system derived 
| from the esoteric source code, which 
| Google releases under the name Chromium. 
| Google is developing the Chrome system as 
| an open-source project and periodically 
| releases the Chromium code online, to let 
| other Web developers contribute to the 
| project. 


Based on GNU/Linux.


Google: âWith Chrome OS, Net access will be in a few secondsâ

,----[ Quote ]
| The product manager Anders Sandholm behind the
| scenes development of Chrome and Chrome 5 OS.
| Two programs pursuing the same goal: faster
| access to Web applications.
| With 40 million users, Chrome is now the third
| most used browser in the world. A software
| that Google has managed to impose only a year
| and a half, thanks to a marketing campaign
| unprecedented for a browser. This is just the
| beginning.


Google Chrome Cloud Printing Enables Universal Printing

,----[ Quote ]
| Perhaps one of the biggest drawbacks of the
| anticipated Google Chrome OS has been the
| absence of computer peripherals compatibility.
| The drivers contained in printer software etc.
| simply haven't been announced compatible with
| Google's operating system, requiring printer
| owners to use Linux or Windows to print pages
| from the internet. Yesterday though, Google
| announced a significant step to repair this
| weakness in their operating system, with the
| introduction of: Google Chrome Cloud Printing.


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 v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
