So Google have announced they are going to be releasing their own OS.
So in about 12 months time we should be seeing the Chrome OS available, and its apparently firstly going to be aimed at the growing netbook market.
The aim is to get something out there thats basic and gives a user what they need, and gets them up and running super smartish. I guess this is going to compete against the likes of Ubuntu Remix, Linpus and other light weight OS’s used on netbooks. I guess Microsoft has a little to worry about, but personally I dont think its going to have a bigger effect than now, as windows is fairly weight for what I believe a netbook was originally designed for.
Look forward to seeing the beta for this, and seeing how many vulnerabilities are found in the first week.
