  1. Following a slew of new netbook and tablet PC announcements at Computex 2010 -- and some rumblings about Windows' security -- Google has come forward with an update on its web-centric operating system for portable devices. Though still light on details, speaking at the Computex cloud computing forum yesterday, Google's VP of product management Sundar Pichai confirmed Chrome OS will be on the market in the fourth quarter of 2010.

    Sound like it'll be good for netbooks and some laptops. But I don't think this spells doom-and-gloom for Microsoft.

    This Chrome OS seems like a waste of time

    Well it's Google's attempt to usurp Microsoft's Windows much the same way as was tried with Linux. They will try and fail as others have.

    It may not, they may just be making this like a test bed if you like, start with netbooks see what the public think then move on making bigger more full products, first a mobile platform (android) now Crome for netbooks and after the pc is left to go, if google to make a good computer os that does take off then into the server Market, man this could get big if proven popular.
  7. Linux is a good OS, but was never marketed in the same way as MS or Apple and most people have never heard of it, but they have heard of Google and will pay attention when they have something to offer. Right now, for those who are aware you can install or uninstall Ubuntu Linux as a program on your present computer without disturbing anything else and choose either OS at startup. Now how cool is that? For those who'd like to install it, go here.... http://wubi-installer.org/
