So, is this really coming, if we believe Techcrunch, Google Chrome OS is ready for download in a week.
Ever since the project was announced in July, experts have debated what Google’s ‘New Era’ OS would be like. There have been ‘alleged’ screenshots and even ‘fake’ torrents doing the rounds on the internet. The wait could be over, there is a catch however.
We expect Google will be careful with messaging around the launch, and endorse a small set of devices for installation. EEE PC netbooks, for example, may be one set of devices that Google will say are ready to use Chrome OS. There will likely be others as well, but don’t expect to be able to install it on whatever laptop or desktop machine you have from day one. Google has previously said they are working with Acer, Adobe, ASUS, Freescale, Hewlett-Packard, Lenovo, Qualcomm, Texas Instruments, and Toshiba on the project.
