So, Google is finally taking on Microsoft. After months of speculation, the big G announced on their blog that they are going to release a Linux-favored operating system of their own, targeted at netbooks, called Google Chrome OS.
Speed, simplicity and security are the key aspects of Google Chrome OS. We’re designing the OS to be fast and lightweight, to start up and get you onto the web in a few seconds. The user interface is minimal to stay out of your way, and most of the user experience takes place on the web. And as we did for the Google Chrome browser, we are going back to the basics and completely redesigning the underlying security architecture of the OS so that users don’t have to deal with viruses, malware and security updates. It should just work.
Frankly, I’m excited. Are you?
