Default Re: Google to launch operating system

Linux based systems can do some things exponentially better than any iteration of Windows could ever hope to do and do it with less (resources).Until there is greater, more broadscale adoption, though, it will always be a very small, niche market for the IT geek.

If Google's new creation helps build the parity in the OS arena, I'm all for it. Only time will tell though.

I'm typing this in Win7 x64.

^^^
that would suck, Probably not because almost all google products are free, in exception to the G1. But then again, an OS takes time and money, so you never know

Google "OS" = Linux (not made by Google) + Webkit (again not made by Google).

So this Google "OS" is used to access several slow and severely limited online "apps", while Google has all your data. It is an "internet kiosk", a Webkit-launcher, but not "operating system".

We've heard this before: it was called "thin client"! And it FAILED.
