Due to launch next year, Google anounced their new Google Chrome Operating System today.

It's been part of their culture to go after and remove Microsoft as a major holder of technology, and this is part of their strategy to do it," said Rob Enderle, principal analyst at Enderle Group.

"This could be very disruptive. If they can execute, Microsoft is vulnerable to an attack like this, and they know it," he said.


Interesting.  They'll have to do better than they have with Chrome browser.

Probably full of data logging and profiling spyware.. rather like their scorned and shunned browser... I think they are building it on the failed open source (sort of) GOS thing put on notebooks 2 years back.. that sucked big time.

Its just another Linux OS.

Though I am happy another big player like Google will be actively developing Linux apps.

Most definitely!
Windows 7 wouldn't be as cool as it is without Linux's influence.
