Editorial Wishful thinking? Yes, but let's consider the possibilities. The last couple years have seen significant advances in hardware production and design. One of the more interesting (and potentially revolutionary) developments to take place this past year is the announcement of a new CPU, the STI (Sony, Toshiba, IBM) Cell processor.

A Google OS?
by Scott on Thu 24th Mar 2005 19:48 UTC

Why are people so infatuated with the idea of a Google OS? I like the idea of an online operating system (although I think latency could be a real big issue) but why are these rumors always centered on Google? Anyone could do this. Yahoo!, Microsoft, Novell, shit even eBay has the infrastructure for doing it. Does it mean any of them will? No I donít think so... Google will do just fine offering its applications in web-based forms, no need for a dedicated OS. Which brings me to point two, why do you need a cell processor to do an online OS? As if this wasnít possible with x86. This whole article is reaching really far in my opinion.
