Google is close to releasing a new operating system, built on a stripped-down Linux core and whose entire user interface is a modified version of the Chrome browser. It's certainly a radical new approach to a web-only device and might appeal to a certain set of people. The highly simplified system can't and isn't meant to be an all-purpose OS and for more advanced users like myself it wouldn't be of much use. Initially it will ship pre-loaded on netbooks running the same Atom CPUs as most Windows netbooks, to be called Chromebooks.
I'm just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on the idea. It's not for me but could it work for your parents or such?
