"Anson opened by talking about Google Chrome OS. He
wrote, "Given that Google has made it clear that the Chrome OS will
be available in the second half of 2010, there's still a lot of
time to see how this will develop. As with most new technology,
Dell plans to evaluate the Chrome OS and other alternative
operating environments, like we've done in the past. Luckily (for
me!), Dell enjoys a great relationship with Google. As we have more
details to share on the topic, we'll do it here."
"Fine and dandy, but what caught my attention was that he went
on to talk about how "Alternative operating systems, continue to
evolve, flourish and prosper." Specifically, what he finds
interesting about them is that "These alternative operating
environments are truly "different" from the traditional Windows
platform - they don't attempt to simply 'mimic' Windows.""
