Google We're having a very slow newsday today, since basically everyone and their cow is compulsively pushing out articles on a product that doesn't even exist beyond an announcement Google's Chrome OS, with none of them being particularly interesting. What is interesting is the news that Intel has been aware of Chrome OS for a while now - in fact, Intel is working with Google on this new operating system.

Actually I'm more interested in what are the features or software which will be included in Chrome OS

Will NX or X Windows client be available so that I can run my Unix/Linux apps ?

http://www.nomachine.com

Will RDP client be included so that I can run my Windows apps

http://www.aikotech.com/thinserver.htm

Will I be able to print locally ?

I think these are the more important issues

Interesting link for that RDP software. Total scam.

I was hoping for a new, cheap, legit alternative to Citrix/MS RDP, maybe even a reimplementation. Posting about this so no-one else wastes more than a few seconds on "aikotech"

It's actually an illegal hack to the Windows operating system, that they are selling disguised as legitimate software.

Take a look at the 'demo': http://www.aikotech.com/thinserver.zip .. Looks to be written by a sloppy teenager with a hushmail account.

If you installed this in a business and got audited, get ready to pay big time. If I wanted to circumvent terminal service licensing fees, there are equally illegal and less expensive ways of doing so than being scammed by this crapware outfit.
