Google Chrome OS Event

We’re here today to talk about Google Chrome OS. We aren’t launching it today and not beta today. But we’ve made progress. As of today the code will be completely open. We’re excited to announce this.

You can view the event live from here.

There are some notable info:

– EVERY applications will be web-based applications. Users can’t install binaries.

You CAN’T install Chrome OS on your machine. You will have to buy a Chrome OS machine. Also, Chrome OS does not operate on a normal Hard Disk. It will only support solid-state drives and certain types of WiFi cards.

– The root partition will be read-only! Basically, it’s like a PC running DeepFreeze. That means, if you break the system, all you have to do is restarting and everything will be up and running again.

– Android apps will not run on Chrome OS, at least not in the near future.

Chrome OS early development downloads are available here. Gotta try it after the final exams period.
