Chrome OS is the next big thing. It is a full-fledged operating system based on Linux that uses Google’s browser (Chrome). This is the biggest news in the computer world today, and it has people wondering what this really means for the future of computing.
If you’re not familiar with Google, it’s a company that specializes in search, advertising, blogging, and some pretty amazing internet applications. Google has also been working on its own operating system called Android.
For the most part, you’re not going to see many apps written in HTML or CSS on Chrome OS. The reason is that the applications written in these languages tend to be a bit slow.
There is no doubt that Chrome OS will eventually replace Linux and will become the most popular operating system on the market. In fact, even Apple is getting in on the act with their new Mac OS X. Microsoft is on the defensive, however, as they have been known to be slow to adapt and it will take time for them to learn the ropes.
Another thing to keep in mind is that there are a lot of people who want to use this new operating system for a PC. They simply do not have the space needed for a full-fledged computer. For those people, Chromebooks are perfect.
These are fairly small laptops that can be used for surfing the web, emailing, and playing games, but there is a large selection of applications on it. They also come with a built-in keyboard and trackpad, which makes them great for the student who wants to do homework. Chromebooks are on the rise and the name is really starting to stick.
