Google Chrome OS Could Shake Up PC Market 


Open source growth changes the definition of community

,----[ Quote ]
| Whatâs remarkable about this analysis is that 
| Google is forced by circumstance to live in 
| all three worlds simultaneously. So the 
| early-stage work on the Chrome OS runs into a 
| media that is also looking at the mid-market 
| efforts of Android and the mass market 
| monetization of the base service and getting 
| muddled.



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)
