Google announced its Google Chrome Operating System, targeted for netbooks and different than Android (their cell phone OS). I am 0% enthusiastic about this news, and I expect it to be a glorified shell with 1 window – Google Chrome.
I want my netbook OS to be sleek, compatible and flexible. This will potentially only satisfy the “sleek” requirement. But I need my netbook to work like a desktop the best it can – when I’m away from a desktop. That means, I don’t want to be fiddling with settings or configurations or running
man. And if I need some software all of a sudden, I want to download it and have it work. Sorry, but for me that means 90% of the market, and that’s Microsoft Windows.
