Google and it's record breaking industrial complex within the search engine world, has broken many barriers by creating interesting new products which fans go mad about. They first exploded with the search engine in 1998, and since then have not only become a giant worldwide in just indexing, but a well oiled machine in the software world as well.
Google has broken walls and created a foundation with it's innovations, allowing itself to not only become number one in the search category, but one of the best email services available, with Gmail. They since developed "Gears", which is an "active" production wheel of services that keep Google products adapting to your operating system.
Some knew this was a prequel to the future, and their beliefs were proven true when Google unveiled the mighty Google Chrome browser, which has become a powerhouse in competing with the number one ranked Mozilla Firefox, and the original Internet Explorer from Microsoft.
Google did not stop there. Google for the last year, have been implementing "Android" Google based "mobile operating systems" into cell phones, and have claimed a huge amount of market share in the ever growing handheld/mobile industry. Google had claimed it's throne as the "king of kings" in the online and multimedia categories.
Google though, had been planning something greater, the highly anticipated Google operating system for personal computers, which has still yet to reach the markets. It promised a linux-based engine, which would of course slaughter Microsoft Windows in performance. That day of reckoning is near, where as next week the Google OS will finally be revealed. Google busts out yet again, with a new force, but none are sure of how compatible it will be.
None the less, this new OS, will be another breakthrough for the powerhouse ran by Eric Schmidt, which many expect to be a huge success. Although there are doubters, many claim that drivers necessary for a smooth running platform OS will not be available immediately. Only time will tell.
The code-named "Chrome OS" is slated for the first public release next week, even though some analysts claim it will be pushed back. The future succession of the OS is yet to be seen, as Linux based operating systems and open source platforms have been available for a very long time, free of charge, and have yet to hold a firm grip upon the market.
Microsoft dominates, clearly in the world of operating systems, but, another brand of competition, let alone a financial giant such as Google, could prove to be a challenge for Microsoft. We shall all see soon.

|Thanks, Obs. If the Google OS is basically "piggy backing" the Linux system, are they going to make the template closer to Microsofts? If not why wouldn't Linux users stay with Linux?|
|Hmmm interesting I cant wait to see what its like. I dont think I would be installing it on this computer Windows 7 is doing a very good job and its alot faster then vista|
|Yeah it's not what most expect it's going to be, and unless you feel like installing driver after driver per app, I doubt it will be hugely successful unless they come out with an auto update or "service pack" feature. :P|
|Thanks for the news might actually check out their OS, now that I know about it.|
|does sound pretty good.. but a team that is in front isn't going to release rubbish.. i reckon the boys in the back room have had it going for awhile sussed out the games sussed out the more popular programs that people use day to day.. but there's always minor problems... i mean look at windows they still can't get it right since 1995.. good luck to google.. now maybe windows will stop making products when they know it's gonna crash.. puh!|

|WoW they either whipped that up in 11 months(since I left Google) or really kept it top secret. Unfortunately, they ended up trashing a few good projects after having ppl working on it for months but this obviously is a super-big leap & an exciting time for them|
|The main issue is this. Almost all hardware/software is pre-configured for Windows use. Even on the open source operating systems, freebsd, ubuntu, debian/lenny, redhat, centos, etc etc etc etc etc.... there are ways to run windows programs. wine for example... anyway, there will be some who figure out how to make everything fall into place, that's why it's open source, and if I were Google, I'd sell it cheap, cheap like 30-49 bucks per copy cheap, to build a HUGE fan base, and to help gain the funding for the service packs or next release. That way they do not lose on the current investment, but are able to prepare themselves for later releases.|

|That is very good|
against the monopoly of Microsot.
I truly hope it will be compatible with most of the programs.
Obs. when you can tell us more.
truly a great article.

|If it is Linux based(my guess would be Ubuntu, but there's so many variations) it will work "right out of the box". I have less trouble with Linux than Windows as far as drivers go. Ubuntu is very good about that. As far as wine goes, I haven't had much luck with that. Some things do work, but not all and not very good, it's like mixing oil and water.And if it is open source it should be free as in freedom, after all we don't pay for Google search engine, so I wouldn't expect to pay for their OS anyway Thanks OBSCENE for all the reporting you do, You're always a step ahead.|
|i read somewhere that next weeks release is primarily for netbook testing, as fewer drivers will be required, its still a long way off from stabilty in primary desktop and notebooks.|
the first few versions will be used mainly for "cloud computing" which means the apps arent stored on ur machine, but are all internet accessable ie. gmail, google docs, maps etc. u will be able to work offline by creating application shortcuts to ur favorite online apps. this is done easily via the google chrome browser. the idea is to keep as much OFF the computer as possible, and store everything online
i'm pretty excited about google OS its going to fun to watch its growth. can world domination be far behind? hehe
thanks Obscene i enjoy ur articles and opinions. and i love ET

|Every 2 dollar idiot puts full faith in Google due to their mass appeal. Google has done, and will do even more, serious damage to Microsoft while giving Linux an even better image than Mac ever could.|

|I predict something brand new will come out that leaves the internet as we know it in the dust. In 2010.|
