Google Chrome OS , set to be released in late 2010, 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” , said Sundar Pichai, vice president of product management.
What the Difference between the new OS and existing operating systems?
Google Chrome Os, an open source operating system, will be free of charge to the consumer. Open source code is easily accessible and allows users to change, and improve the software, and to redistribute it in modified or unmodified forms. Before getting your hopes up on anything free, MTI cautions: modifications and customizations will be a process that may be above the standard PC user’s level but without customizations the free product may not function in the desired way.
