Google has eventually come out with the announcement that it is developing a unique Operating System - called the Google Chrome OS.
It will be Open Source, light weight, speedy, simple and secure. Google says the new OS will be targeted at Netbooks and will make it's debut sometime next year (2010). As the name suggests, Google Chrome OS will in all probability be a browser centric OS; in that, most applications will be residing in the cloud. The OS will run on x86 and ARM architecture.
Really exciting news for sure.
