Video demo of Google Chrome OS

A video demo of Google’s Chrome OS from TechChrunch. 

Google today released information on its ChromeOS.  Some fun facts:

  • Released 2H2010 (Just like Apple’s tablet?)
  • Will boot only from SSD, in 7 seconds
  • Runs on ARM or x86
  • Will only work on new Netbooks, not your current POS Netbook
  • Is basically just an Internet Thin client -Just a HTML 5 Browser – Chrome
  • Open Source so other browser makers could use it as well, and Microsoft already has an online version of Excel ready for it.

This is so slimmed down that it will run on extremely small laptops.  That might give Apple’s tablet some competition.  Feel free to comment below.
