It’s official. Google has unveiled their new operating system – Chrome OS. And Google notebooks look to be the first way for you to be able to experience the new operating system for yourself.
Basically, with Chrome OS, the Chrome browser becomes the entire operating system. And everything lives in the cloud. The name of the game is speed. From quick start-up to instant-on from standby mode.
Samsung and Acer are the first manufacturers to produce this notebook, currently in pilot program, and will launch to consumer market sometime in 2011. While Google is pushing this OS for business customers because of the ability to work solely in the cloud, you wonder if long term, this will be a consumer solution as well?
