The Google Chrome OS is coming…

http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2009/07/introducing-google-chrome-os.html Google announces the Google chrome OS which is pretty much a web-based OS. I guess would be much like Palm Pre in that sense. I was wondering when Android will start fragmentation. Looks like 2nd half 2010 or 1st half 2011 as of now ๐Ÿ˜‰

But exciting as it is, lets see how Google jumps into the already competitive desktop OS market. It would definitely be a blow to MS Windows but would it be able to nudge *nix based distros? Lets see if it just remains another of the 300+ distribution or comes above/below ubuntu. (http://www.distrowatch.com/) Wait & Watch and see how it turns up and if Google will canibalize Android for Chrome or vice-versa. Interesting times to come…
