"Most of all, we are obsessed with speed. We are taking out every unnecessary process, optimizing many operations and running everything possible in parallel. This means you can go from turning on the computer to surfing the web in a few seconds. Our obsession with speed goes all the way down to the metal. We are specifying reference hardware components to create the fastest experience for Google Chrome OS." ---Google

Google changed the world. It made things easier, made lives lighter. One click on the search engine and everything you need is right in front of you. Call it spoon feeding but who wouldn’t want an easier access to things? From a search engine, to a browser and now an OS. Coming very soon is Google’s latest project, the Chrome OS. Speaking of the Chrome OS, what’s the drama behind this new thing? Will it make computers and laptops faster? Will it give people different web experience? Let AllWeLike help you with the questions that bug your brain about Chrome OS.

So, what is Chrome OS?

Chrome OS is Google’s venture on the operating system platform. It’s a forthcoming operating system designed by Google to work exclusively with web applications and based on the open source Chromium OS project.

Chrome OS, unlike others, will not be available as a download to run and install, although Chromium OS can be compiled from source by anyone. Chrome OS will only ship on specific hardware from Google’s manufacturing partners. The user interface takes a minimalist approach, resembling that of the Chrome web browser.

Still the OS of the near future, Android will be.

Research firm Gartner tackled the stats yesterday: that within two years, Google’s Android and Nokia’s Symbian operating systems will still gobble up mobile-market shares.
.
The yearend rate for Android will increase to 17.7%, and will exponentially grow up to 29.6% in the coming months. The iPhone will continue to cater to the higher end of the market, Gartner pointed out, a lot of Android-powered products will get “more into the hands of the mainstream user.”

Google’s OS has already spent a splendid summer. CEO Eric Schmidt reported last month that 200,000 Android devices are sold daily. This trend came from “the fact that most of the vendors who are backing it will release cheaper smartphones.” NPD group backed this up with a report that Android accounted for 33 percent of smartphone sales in the U.S. Relatively, Blackberry went down to #2 at 28%, and Apple as third at 22%.
