  1. Google's much-anticipated operating system, Chrome OS, will be available for download next week. That is at least according to a "reliable source" cited by TechCrunch, who claims we can expect official driver support only for a small set of devices in this early version.

    This is something I really want to test drive, from a long time I'm looking for that definite distro for netbooks, and this might be it, dual booting this one and W7 might be a good start.

    Says it will have little driver support, I hope most wifi's adaptors fit into this "little" support.
     
  3. If Google's new OS is as good as their awesome Chrome browser, I'll definitely buy a netbook just to try it out.

    When Chrome debuted over a year ago, I never intended to do anything but try it out, as I do most new software. Little did I know that from that day on (and to my great surprise) I would for the most part, abandon Firefox for good.

    I can only imagine that Google's stupid-fast browser will be faster and snappier yet (if that's even possible) when run in their new OS

    Next year is going to be an exciting one for sure!

    I really hope it is going to be a good OS.
    Google is surely a company who can force Microsoft to completely rewrite their OS and create a new generation OS. Not simply an evolution.
    The IT world need some revolution. Even if a lot a people think that it would not be fair to be incompatible with the past it is maybe the only way to get rid of all those bugs and limitations.
