Way back, I posted series of articles (article 1, article 2) about the future of OS and now Google is about to take it’s initial steps towards it. The news isn’t surprising for me since the hype of Google OS was in market from quite a while.
As stated on Google blog, Google is redefining the concepts of OS. Their focus is “Speed, simplicity and security”. One of the thing that really got my attention is that Google isn’t focusing on some high-end hi-fi kind OS. Their “initial” focus is to provide a platform which should be secure and simple enough to help the user to leverage from web applications. Google had made this point quite clear in post
All web-based applications will automatically work and new applications can be written using your favorite web technologies. And of course, these apps will run not only on Google Chrome OS, but on any standards-based browser on Windows, Mac and Linux thereby giving developers the largest user base of any platform.
This does make sense, since there are almost every kind of applications available on internet now, all you need is web browser and a decent internet connection. Google knows that it’s time for RIA and Google is providing almost every possible medium to make as much as user friendly and accessible.
