View Full Version : Google OS to be introduced tomorrow

Well, maybe tomorrow. Apparently Google has an operating system ready for introduction for netbooks.

Two separate sources—one inside the company and one outside it—have confirmed to Ars tonight that Google plans to launch an operating system built in some fashion around its new web browser, Chrome. One source says that the new OS will be launched soon, perhaps as early as tomorrow.

Beyond the bare outlines, we have little solid information at this point, though the idea of a Google OS isn't some novelty; in fact, it's been aired publicly for years.

I'm wondering if this will include Google's "Native Client" which allows compiled code to run on any x86 machine, iirc. If so, this will have huge, huge implications for Microsoft and Windows.
