And it's coming early next year!! PLUS it has a 7-second boot time!! Is there any other OS faster than that?? This video below includes a look at Chrome’s short boot time, some of the apps Chrome OS will be able to run, and the operating system’s interface. Google says that if you're a developer, has the right netbook and know-how, you can use their Chrome OS source code and have the OS run in your netbook now. Way cool!
The operating systems that browsers run on were designed in an era where there was no web. So today, we're announcing a new project that's a natural extension of Google Chrome — the Google Chrome Operating System. It's our attempt to re-think what operating systems should be.I'm very, very, very excited about this (as most tech-loving people are) and I just can't wait for 2010! The big question is: will this be FREE (it's open source after all) or will they charge a nominal fee for it? And how will Microsoft react to this? Do I smell a Microsoft versus Google war brewing? YEEHA!!
Google Chrome OS is an open source, lightweight operating system that will initially be targeted at netbooks. Later this year we will open-source its code, and netbooks running Google Chrome OS will be available for consumers in the second half of 2010.
Speed, simplicity and security are the key aspects of Google Chrome OS. We're designing the OS to be fast and lightweight, to start up and get you onto the web in a few seconds. The user interface is minimal to stay out of your way, and most of the user experience takes place on the web.

Go join the contest! The lucky winner will be drawn today so hurry!
Like most of you, I listen to music online — either via direct streaming or online radios. I’ve actually joined many such sites but only in OnlineRadioStations.com did I feel “at home” =) They have over over 5000 radio stations of live streaming music, talk, news, sports & weather, and specialty stations like old time radio and Christmas music. As you might have guessed, my favorite station are the news stations. Hehe!
- I'd probably bring chicken pie or pizza =)
2. Considering your answer to the previous question, are you more likely to buy something already prepared, or prepare something from scratch on your own?
- Buy something prepared! Why hassle myself? ;-)
3. Where is the last place you met a close friend for coffee or a meal?
- In a buffet restaurant for our dinner. Hi Chin! ^_^
4. Take the quiz: What Mexican Food Are You?
- Here's my result & I completely agree!!
|You Are a Quesadilla|
You are easy going and very laid back. You find a lot of happiness in life. You're content to go with the flow, and you can't stand uptight people.
You are a loyal friend and family member. You truly put other people first. You enjoy feeling comforted and comforting others. You believe life is about the simple pleasures.
- Too many too mention! My family, hubby and I love eating so most local restaurants have sentimental value to me =)
6. If you had a local restaurant that you liked, but that was a hangout for you and a close friend, and that friend moved away, would you find it hard to go back how hard would it be for you to continue going to that restaurant?
