Google To Launch New OS

Last night Google dropped some very big news to the world: Google Chrome OS. Yes, you heard that right, Google will be releasing a new operating system. From the small details that were revealed, the OS will be based on a Linux kernel and will first be targeted to netbooks and will be open source. Google is already working with hardware vendors and claim you will be able to purchase a netbook powered by Google Chrome OS sometime in 2010.

The interesting piece of this news is the OS will be built in a way that most of the user experience will take place over the web. So according to Google your apps that run on the new OS will also be able to be used on any of standards compliant web browsers. I was surprised at this news as I am sure some other makers out there were as well.

You can read the full post from Google on their blog.
