"Has the moment passed already for Google Chrome OS?
Linux User columnist Simon Brew examines the evidence…
"One of the most interesting projects announced last year, for
my money at least, was Google Chrome OS. This was, as you probably
know, Google's signal of intent that it was going head first into
the operating system market, having found a niche in which it
figured it could make an impact.
"Its thinking was smart, too. It targeted the then burgeoning
netbook market, coming up with a fast, quick-booting operating
system that stored everything you needed in the cloud. When it was
first demonstrated, and Google showed a portable machine booting to
a working desktop in under ten seconds, I wanted to get cracking
with the OS right there and then."
