Chromoting: ChromeOS to run traditional applications?

,----[ Quote ]
| Another interesting option may come from some 
| where like Codeweavers who run Windows 
| applications in a Linux (ChromeOS is a Linux 
| variant) environment.  That wouldn't 
| necessarily be "inside the browser" but there 
| is always wiggle room in defining the browser 
| when it is the whole OS.


Chrome OS to run legacy PC applications remotely using Chromoting

,----[ Quote ]
| Google Chrome OS will be with us before the 
| end of 2010. You will be able to buy a new 
| netbook running it instead of Windows. But 
| what if you are worried about being able to 
| use some apps that currently run on Windows 
| after the switch? Apparently Google has you 
| covered with something being referred to as 
| Chromoting.


Google Chrome OS to Be Able to Run âRemoteâ Native Apps 

,----[ Quote ]
| Google has bold plans for Chrome OS: it wants 
| to build an operating system that relies 
| solely on web applications. This strict 
| requirement means that the only native app in 
| Chrome OS is the Chrome browser itself. Even 
| things like printing will be handled in the 
| cloud. Still, there are plenty of desktop apps 
| today that donât have an equivalent in the 
| cloud. It now looks like Google has an answer 
| to that issue as well through a technology 
| dubbed tentatively âchromoting.â


Chrome OS Is All About the Ads

,----[ Quote ]
| Chrome OS is squarely positioned to feed 
| traffic and users into Google's lucrative 
| search-and-ad ecosystem. That's the main 
| source of revenues over at Google, and it's 
| worth remembering how that influences all 
| aspects of Google's strategy.



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.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
