    Default Chrome OS Release Schedule

    Google VP of product management Sundar Pichai today announced that Chrome OS, Google’s open source web app operating system, would be released in the fourth quarter of 2010 reports the Chrome Source. This news will be of interest to those who have begun to wonder whether Google should even contemplate introducing its web app focused operating system, particularly with the success of Android and the iPad.
    GigaOm’s Kevin Tofel raises a valid point:

    “Chrome OS was initially introduced as a platform for the netbook form factor, but if the market is shifting to tablets, Google will have to make some significant changes to it in order to make it finger-friendly.
    However, Om Malik goes on to explain that he believes Google’s acquisition of BumpTop (a free flowing desktop app) is to play a significant role in transforming Chrome OS."


    That said, the heaviest criticisms come from pundits and analysts who fear Google’s reliance on “the cloud” for its OS could be its major downfall.
    Google Chrome OS will reportedly follow a three-tier architecture: firmware, browser and window manager and aims to leveraging web apps, HTML5’s offline modes, background processing, and notifications.

    Chrome OS releasing at the end of this year is real great news. I have seen a few demos of OS. Though not polished, the OS seemed nice and simple (like all things Google).

    But the problem is that, it is geared towards netbooks having SSDs (for speed) and will require net connection in Mbps for it to work properly. I think will have to wait a few years to get a Google OS experience.

    And regarding, developing an all together new OS, instead of using Android. Well, I think it's better to have different OS serving the needs of a particular platform.

    But, will Chrome OS be able to do what Mac and Linux couldn't all these years? I suspect...

    May be or may be not...
    But in India, i am sure its #phial . B/w issues . We cant be able to use the clouds to proper extent coz speeds are low and Usage limits ***k big time. Moreover it will be released only for netbooks in the beginning i guess.

    ^^ Yup thats what I said. But I seriously hope that I get my hands on iso of Chrome OS (or will it only come preinstalled in netbooks!) and be able to run it on my desktop, so that I can at least do some basic stuff and play around with it, learning more about it.

    I think if you want to do it , you have to go Virtual with it coz sources say that first releases of Chrome are targeted to some specific hardware so we have to wait for a universal stable release that supports all type of hardware to make a dedicated install and go in Clouds

    No problem going virtual. And if Google has to do some serious damage to Windows OS share, then it's has to be available on a number of platform.

    I seriously hope, one day would come when Windows will die the same slow death, that IE is getting today. And if not Chrome, then somebody else would have to do it.

    In the end, they will make Windows open source to keep up with it!

    Errr... Chrome OS was never intended as a replacement for your usual Windows and full-fledged Linux OS'.

    Chrome OS is a competitor to MeeGo and Ubuntu Netbook Edition!

    Holy hell! I don't want that, those 2 OS are already doing a good job.

    Will there be anybody, someday who can really make Windows a minority.
    I really hate when some of the best softs are only available for Windows platform and I have to go back to Windows again and again, just to access them.

    lol, you aren't the only one RavS. Many actually think it to be a full fledged OS. In reality, it's just for the Netbooks.

    Yups, its interface is like that only. Its totally intel atom based but looks cool The theme of netbook remix available to all, the Os is for netbooks. check the release notes and ubuntu.com for details.

    But are these "cloud-based" OS suitable for fraudband-loving India?

    probably not. cloud computing customers do not own the physical infrastructure, instead avoiding expenses by renting usage from a third-party provider. They consume resources as a service and pay only for resources that they use. users can avoid expenditure on hardware, software, and services when they pay a provider only for what they use. so to use clouds, we need to spend money to buy some space online (Eg:- Ubuntu cloud gives 2gb space for free and 50 gb additional i provided at some cost) Then we need a good and secure connection to upload and access our data. To download, we again need b/w and good speeds. everywhere money,conn. speed and b/w are playing vital role. So you can yourself think what are the chances of cloud in india.

    Ok, hypothetically, if we assume that we get the minimum speed required to use a Cloud base OS and also (somehow) purchase the space. But what about security.

    In this age where email hacking is common, what will be the guarantee that all my data on some invisible server is secure? I think that is a quite a bit concern in the success of a cloud based OS.

    Well, cloud computing has got a lot of potential. Kaspersky raised two big questions on clouds :-
    -How safe is our data in the clouds? And who can guarantee our mission-critical information placed in the clouds won’t be misappropriated?
    -with our computing activities increasingly moving to servers located in “clouds”, will this configuration still protect us from unwanted viruses?

    Answer seems to be "NO". The big hipe that Cloud is getting and the enormous resource pool is making clouds more vulnerable to attacks by hackers and thieves looking to steal information and capital. There, it seems that investing ones resources on a cloud-based app only serves to increase risk, in contrary to popular belief.

    However, hope is still there. EMC, Intel and VMware are joining forces to improve security and regulatory compliance in cloud computing. The goal is to establish a "hardware root of trust for a cloud environment," creating resource pools within private clouds that share common physical characteristics and the same security policies.
    Cloud computing platforms typically place multiple applications on the same pool of hardware, but Curry notes that certain types of data cannot be mingled with other types because of government and industry regulations. The proof of concept combines authentication technology inside Intel processors with VMware technology that collects data from physical and virtual infrastructure and then feeds that data to RSA's security platform, which identifies potential threats to security and compliance.
    Hope this really works in ensuring data security in the clouds bcoz i will hate to lose my data or get it stolen by some hacker when i am paying for the service.
