It said the open-source software, called Chrome OS, would be available in the second half of next year. Read more for a quick observation on the announcement.

What a prediction

This is eerie. Look what I said in April:

"I'd like to see a company like Google attempt an OS. They actually have the resources to get something going (although their only reason to make an OS would be to kill Microsoft). If they made a snappy responsive lightweight OS, we'd see something interesting."

...and look what I see today on BBC news:

"We're designing the OS to be fast and lightweight, to start up and get you onto the web in a few seconds."[...] "One of Google's major goals is to take Microsoft out, to systematically destroy their hold on the market,"


Well, now we're seeing something interesting. (too bad it's a damn web-based OS, but I guess one can't have everything)
