Well it's good that Google has its own Operating System, but because they have an OS now, they have all your data if they want...
But the brightside is that it will be OpenSource, so if this is the case, some neat developers will distribute an "uncontrolled" OS version of Googles Chrome OS.
I just got news that Google is going to start bringing out its Chrome Operating System based on Linux. The OS will mainly be able to use the web applications that you have an account with google.com.
The main thing here is I hope that they have facilities to cater to offline applications, as networks lose connectivity at many points of time and will result in data loss and lower productivity.
I always thought about when the WOS (web operating system) will come out. This is an OS that runs direcctly from BIOS or memory, requires only limited storage for offline data, and runs a browser for its operating system. This would mean that its really fast to boot up and use, instantly.
The applications can be on the web, and synchronize offline data, whenever connectivity is up.
This runs on a tablet like device which is lightweight, has solar charging, as well.
This can later merge with mobiles, so that they can be made smaller and integrate communications.
We'll have to try and get someone to develop this, as I see this is the way towards the future. [/img]
