It’s nice in its way. It will play DVDs, it’ll write data on ‘em, it’ll even inscribe them with text and graphics if you care to utilize the Lightscribe function. But I can hardly think of a single situation in which something like this would be needed. Can you?

I mean, netbooks would croak after powering this thing for half an hour. Every regular-sized laptop worth its salt has a DVD drive already. The market for these must just be incredibly small.

Google Chrome OS

Update: Google announcing a new project that’s a natural extension of Google Chrome — the Google Chrome Operating System.

Google Chrome OS

According to Official Google Source:


” It’s our attempt to re-think what operating systems should be. 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.

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.

Google Chrome OS will run on both x86 as well as ARM chips and we are working with multiple OEMs to bring a number of netbooks to market next year. The software architecture is simple — Google Chrome running within a new windowing system on top of a Linux kernel. For application developers, the web is the platform. All web-based applications will automatically work and new applications can be written using your favorite web technologies. And of course, these apps will run not only on Google Chrome OS, but on any standards-based browser on Windows, Mac and Linux thereby giving developers the largest user base of any platform. “

Google Chrome OS is being created for people who spend most of their time on the web, and is being designed to power computers ranging from small netbooks to full-size desktop systems.

Is Windows in Trouble.

Is Windows in Trouble??

My Opinion:
What I think is that Google Chrome could be a real problem for Microsoft.These Big changes won’t happen overnight, but may be 5 years out from now Microsoft will lose significant share of the desktop. ALLAH knows

Lets Wait for Microsoft reply to this awing step from Google.
