Google's Chrome OS: A Sculpture by Any Other Name

Submitted on Tuesday, 7/14/2009, at 9:39 AM

Last week, Google announced (in a low-key blog post) that they are sculpting a new computer operating system, Chrome OS. Starting with an armature of Linux, it will carve off the Desktop and cast Google's Chrome web browser as its user interface. Other common operating system features will be chiseled away to allow its computing power to better support web activities and improve security.
