Windows 7: Chrome OS to launch this fall

02 Jun 2010   #11

Windows 7 Pro x64 & Win7 Pre x64 / Ubuntu 9.10 Beta

ChromeOS ... it's not Android.

That's all I have to say. (Who has two thumbs and has inside information? 'This Guy!')

This made me laugh! I thought of this:

I would try Chrome out but I really don't see it being a threat to much.

Although I see the cloud in the future, I don't think it is ready yet..(It's close ) but I have tried Chrome OS (the beta version) and the only thing I can do add documents, browse the web and that's really it...(Kinda boring)

and like other posters said before security is a really big issue with cloud based operating systems.
Agreed. The OS software is nothing to be excited about it because like you said you are pretty much limited to internet usage and using the google documents stuff. IT's not really a true OS in itself - if it to were compete they would be featuring this on a much larger scale, but clearly with it's limitations the only thing I can Chrome OS being is something installed on public internet computers or on the netbook PCS.

Google think they can stand on their own ,they try avoiding using microsoft OS and try building their own OS which i don't think can last long

Linux (Debian, Android)

I don't see the cloud going mainstream until HTML5, WebGL, and NaCl applications go mainstream.

Microsoft already has a web-based Word, PowerPoint, and Excel at

I really hope its enough of a success for google to never release a product for windows again.

As stated here they are ditching windows in their offices and hopefully that will lead to them ditching windows altogether which will make your privacy on windows a lot more secure. If we can keep google products of mac's and pc's then that is perfect. Good riddance google :)

I dread the day you can't buy apps for your computer any more

I just spent a week in the Sierra's with my camera and laptop. Photographing all day then processing images on CS5 at night. How can I do that on a cloud computer with no internet connection for miles?

And even if there IS an internet connection the closest one was satellite, anyone wanna guess what the performance of using a CS5 like app to process 8 gigs of data a day over THAT is?

And of course ALL of that it music to the comm providers ears because we will all be paying THROUGH THE NOSE for net access JUST to use our computers.

Look what AT&T recently did to iPhone and iPad users... IS that what people REALLY want?

I hope I'm dead before that's my only choice
