Google Chrome OS is coming

Google has finally confirmed that it will be launching its very own operating system, after years of rumours.

The Chrome OS will be launched next year and will be pitched directly up against Microsoft’s old monolith Windows, only unlike Windows it will be open source, and Google promise that it will have you up and running on the internet ‘in a few seconds’. It will also be run along the lines of the Chrome browser, which is sleek and simple (and most importantly) stays out of your way.

‘Users want their computers to always run as fast as when they first bought them,’ said Sundar Pichai, Google’s vice-president of product management. ‘They want their data to be accessible to them wherever they are and not have to worry about losing their computer or forgetting to back up files. Computers need to get better.’
