Google Inc. is planning to hit Microsoft Corp. where it hurts by challenging the software giant's dominance in the world of computer operating systems.

The search firm said late Tuesday that it will begin offering its own operating system, called Chrome, in the second half of 2010.
Maybe I should have waited on Win7... :scratch:

Google is well on it's way to becoming the new king. All that from two kids trying to organize chaos.

Reading between the lines, it sounds like they are going for a stripped down OS that will mostly use web-based apps. Could be interesting though...

It seems the core of the OS will be Linux.
"The Chrome operating system will run in a new windowing system on top of a Linux kernel — computer coding that has been the foundation for the open-source software movement for nearly two decades."

Hopefully it'll be better then their "Chrome" browser
Yeah, I agree, Chrome is a disappointment. Not really ready for prime-time in my opinion.

The Wall Street Journal agrees, and says that:

Google, despite its huge success, is still a one-hit wonder. After spending $6 billion on research and development in the past three years, its efforts to expand beyond its paid-search goldmine have not yet led to another money spinner.
