Chrome OS

Google Chrome operating system

Google Chrome OS is a forthcoming Linux operating system, based on Ubuntu and designed by Google to work exclusively with web applications. The user interface takes a minimalist approach, resembling that of the Chrome web browser. Because Google Chrome OS is aimed at users who spend most of their computer time on the Internet, the only application on the device will be a browser incorporating a media player. The expected launch date: early 2011 to mid-2011.


• Notion Ink initially announced the capability of running Android, ChromeOS and Ubuntu on ADAM; but as of December 2010, there is only an Android version available, with the custom Eden user interface built on top. There is speculation[S] that ADAM may support Chrome OS in the future.
