The major internet search engine is developing a Operative System specifically designed for low cost Notebooks, that will be ready for public in the second half of 2010.
The objective is to stole the market leadership to the feudal lords of “Windows”, from Microsoft. Something like open source Linux.
The Chrome OS will be based in a Open Source code, as its well used browser Chrome!
This new Operative System from Google is being designed to respond to all the needs of the internet consumers and the objective is that the users don’t have to deal with viruses, “malware” or constant security updates.
In my opinion I think it’s a waste of time in trying to make a new spectacular OS, UNIX based, since we have really good open source Linux Operative Systems distributions like Ubuntu, Mandriva, Gentoo and window design managers like KDE, xfce available and able to be upgrated. The best thing to do, though, was to improve the existing systems, like SUN did with Open Office, and really contribute to the fight against the Windows reign… the dawn of the Open Source revolution!
