Google Chrome OS to compete with Microsoft
Original post made by googlewatch on Nov 20, 2009
The [Web Link New York Times reports] that computers will be sold next year with the Google Chrome operating system, which is quite different from Microsoft Windows in that it utilizes online programs only. A prototype computer using the operating system reportedly booted up in just seven seconds.
Google seriously believes that every single computer application will be internet based someday, and that the trend is already "very, very clear." Microsoft believes otherwise, though it reportedly plans to develop new "cloud computing" features for its products as well.
