Google Chrome OS Coming Soon to a Netbook Near You
My Yoono notification popped up while I was working on this blog the other night with a notification from Google stating that Google Chrome OS is on it’s way. Since the announcement the web has been abuzz with talk about whether it will give Windows a run for it’s money. Google’s reasoning behind creating this new OS is that with the evolution of the internet people are spending more time on the internet doing things they used to only be able to do on their desktop. They are looking to integrate some of their already largely successful services into a windows based user experience. I love the idea. While I don’t know if Google will give Windows a run for their money straight out of the gate I do believe they are going to provide some much needed solid competition. When there’s competition between companies it’s to the consumers adavantage, you tend to see better deals, more features and new features churned out more frequently. For now Google is planning on making their OS available on netbooks being released in the latter part of next year. I look forward to (as should you) this new OS on the block.
(One side note – I am a Mac FanGirl 100% so while I’m excited to see what Google has to offer that does not mean I am straying from my MBP or Leopard anytime soon)
