Google introduced yesterday its operating system based on Linux and the Chrome browser. Although things are still pretty early, since the OS is not even in beta yet, the big features are all roughed out.
The system is web-based and runs on the Chrome browser, and is focused on use cases for people who primarily use the web – at least for now.
Google said is planning the launch of Chrome OS for the end of next year, but we’re talking about a totally open source system that will be available for free, as a VMWare download.
Until then, check out this demo for Google Chrome OS.
