Google’s operating system Chrome OS, originally announced in July 2009, will debut this fall. There are still many unknowns about the OS, but we know that it will be a free operating system based on the Chrome browser, targeted at netbooks and designed to work with web applications.
“We are working on bringing the device later this fall,” Google’s Vice President of Product Management Sundar Pichai said at CompuTex. “It’s something which we are very excited by … We expect it to reach millions of users on day one,” he said.
Given Google’s vast influence and Chrome’s rising share of the market, it will reach a vast number of users, but how many of them will opt to actually use it as their primary OS? Support from hardware manufacturers would definitely help, and judging by some early reports, Chrome OS won’t go unnoticed.
