I just readed a news on TechCrunch about google chrome, the author of the article said :
“Google’s Chrome OS project, first announced in July, will become available for download within a week, we’ve heard from a reliable source. Google previously said to expect an early version of the OS in the fall.”
We know that the code will be available for public the end of the year, but the question is : Does google developers were able to create a new OS in approximately 5 Months ? Does google was able to bring support to all hardware and drivers in 5 months of work ? or not every hardware will be supported in the coming version of Chrome OS? in releation with this question they wrote on TechCrunch that : “Driver support will likely be a weak point. We’ve heard at various times that Google has a legion of engineers working on the not so glamorous task of building hardware drivers. And we’ve also heard conflicting rumors that Google is mostly relying on hardware manufacturers to create those drivers”
Anyway at least we know one thing, that Google Chrome OS will be based on Linux kernel. So is just one week we can wait.
