Are You Interested in Trying Google's Chrome OS?

Are You Interested in Trying Google's Chrome OS?

On Tuesday, Google announced the launch of its new Chrome OS, which will be available for consumers next year.

Google's operating system will compete with OS X, Windows, and Linux, and promises to be open source and lightweight. Google says that it will first come to netbooks, and if it's as quick as the "lightweight" term promises, you can bet I'll be getting my hands on it as soon as I can.

Naturally, that's mostly due to my curiosity, rather than an unhappiness with OS X, which is what I'm running now.

Are you going to switch over to Chrome OS when you can?

I'll play around with it too, but probably won't consider it unless I get a netbook.

I have a Dell netbook, which I love...and I definitely plan on using this when it comes out. I do think it's just glorified linux for now, but we'll see.

If Chrome is focusing on the netbook market, then I don't really see how it would be competing with OS X. Unless Apple DOES decide to get into that market, Chrome would just have to worry about Microsoft and other Linux distributions. That said, while I love my macs, I also use a dell laptop. I wouldn't mind loading Chrome on it to try it out, or even getting a netbook with Chrome pre-installed.

soooo excited! I love the Chrome browser, it should be interesting. It would depend on what software would be compatible.

I am definitely interested to see what sorts of features it will have, and just how fast and lightweight it will be.

I would play around with it but being an Apple girl it isn't anything I would really need.
