I am very excited.

This promises to be good, if not directly, than competition-wise. The Windows (Works) vs Mac OS X (Fisher Price for adults) is not good for innovation and competition (Face it, no one uses Linux. Sorry.). With the introduction of Chrome, and more importantly, a big name behind it, we should see some interesting developments on the OS Front.

I just don't see why they're starting on an OS while their web browser isn't even entirely stable yet.

Yeah, I'm sure I'll end up trying it.

But who says I pay for computer games?

;)

(Mostly true, but I buy the good ones)

hehehehe

most of mine are opensource these days

I'm a little leery though of the Chrome OS
just because they never ported Chrome (browser) to Linux
but now they're going to use it's kernel
I would've thought perfecting it on the browser
before going all out with it would be preferable

Well hey, if they halfass it or not, it'll better than Vista pre-SP1 either way :P

On a sidenote, have you tried the Windows 7 RC1 yet?

I haven't allowed microsux
on one of my machines
since dos 6.22
windows 3.11

so, no, haven't tried bills latest virus
I like using it more than defragging my hd

I wanted to give it a go, when I got the new box set up a few months back. Wouldn't install, just kept crashing, so I ended up installing xp, which btw I haven't booted into yet. Hardware is P45 with Kingston hyperx and wd drives, as mainstream as it gets.

Google is a trendsetter in web based applications and will release Google Chrome Operating system that will run on low-end systems. This will be an open source project as mentioned in google official blog. On the other hand Microsoft is a trendsetter in desktop computing and offers a range of options to users. I would like to say that on the netbook platform, yes, google operating system can kill Windows but on the desktop computing, no.

Why would you think only low-end systems?
and, Isn't cloud computing Low End and the "wave" as I've heard?


This will be an open source project as mentioned in google official blog. woot!


On the other hand Microsoft is a trendsetter in desktop computing and offers a range of options to users.what?
I need a drink?
name a single innovative idea to come out of bill, microsux or redmond, Please?

PS2 architecture comes to mind, oh, wait, that lasted 6 mos, they killed it because it was to innovative and they couldn't support it alone, and didn't want to license any of it, so the one and only spark that they had was a victim of bills death by innovation.

winblows: shows what happens when you steal an idea and not the intelligence

stifling is redmonds only weapon, its not the weapon of choice for innovators

ask Linus

I would like to say that on the netbook platform, yes, google operating system can kill Windows but on the desktop computing, no.

and I would like to say that winblows as an os is going the way of, 95/98,2000(in all it incarnations), Vista(there was a good idea),
can't wait for 7's epic fail, if true to form, the patches should start coming at about 3 a month for the first 6 months. the security issues will start being acknowledged after 4 mos.

i'm looking forward to the obama of operating systems

I have Win 7 installed. I've had no problems with it really. It's a very nice OS. Runs Chrome real good.

I may have just gotten a copy of Chrome OS but that is still to be seen. If you want one, google it. :) (Also will need a virtual box)

If you do, it will probably not be functional well because it is still patchy.

Only low-end because ChromeOS isn't a full OS like linux, MacOS or Windoze. It can only run web apps, not install locally run native apps. That definitely rules it out for heavy use.
