Coming Soon to an OS near you – Google Chrome

Clive Lobo

It finally happened – Google decided to cross over and start playing in Microsoft’s back yard, well perhaps that isn’t an accurate analogy – Google will be playing in Microsoft’s living room, with its toys and eating its chips (better :)). Google announced it will be releasing a Chrome OS, due for shipping in 2010. Here it is, directly from the horses mouth:

Google Chrome OS is an open source, lightweight operating system that will initially be targeted at netbooks. Later this year we will open-source its code, and netbooks running Google Chrome OS will be available for consumers in the second half of 2010. Because we’re already talking to partners about the project, and we’ll soon be working with the open source community, we wanted to share our vision now so everyone understands what we are trying to achieve.

I wonder if Chrome the browser will come pre-installed and defaulted to Google’s search page… and I wonder if they will make it difficult to run Microsoft Explorer… inquiring minds want to know.
