Google "Google's Chrome Operating System launch has been delayed, and the platform won't be available to launch on netbooks for at least the 'next few months'. Google CEO Eric Schmidt revealed as much to reporters in a Q&A session at the Web 2.0 Summit Nov. 15, adding that the platform continues to be targeted for devices with a keyboard. Though he didn't provide a reason for the delay, he certainly shredded the rumor that there would be netbooks based on Google's Chrome Operating System launching this month."

Not a single fuck was given that day.

I keep wanting to care about chromeos. I mean I've been wishing for an operating system on the pc by google for ages. But I just can't get excited about it. It just seems so odd to intentionally cripple a system like that. I might use my netbook for the web the majority of the time. But to take away the percentage that I'm not, however small it might be, would make it a really subpar experience.
