Google to Produce a Full Chrome OS

Posted by Chris DeMarco on Wednesday, July 8th, 2009 at 9:44 am

Now this has got me quite excited. It seems that after the great success Google has had with its Chrome browser, the internet giant will run even further ahead with its already remarkable success and turn Chrome into an entire operating system.

Reading on the Official Google Blog, the operating system will be designed specifically for the “web era,” with features and operation intended to ease and simplify using internet resources directly within the OS. It will run on both x86 as well as the ARM architecture, meaning that you would be able to install it right on your desktop or laptop PC just like a copy of Windows or Linux.

Perhaps the most exciting part are the projected release dates. Google intends to have source code available later this year, and actually have computers for sale with the OS in the second half of 2010, only about a year away. That’s exciting!

Given Google’s great success with the Chrome browser (around 30 million people use it regularly) and traack record of great, reliable products, it will be interesting to watch this project progress.
