The gist (and what I don't like):
- Can only be installed on Solid State Drives or Flash Drives
- Web Applications Only... no Desktop Apps/programs PERIOD.
- Will only run on "Google Certified" hardware
- The OS in itself is actually a web browser that is an OS or an OS that is a web browser... ???
- Targeted for Netbooks or Secondary Computers
- All data is stored online
"Chrome OS also auto-updates on every boot, and re-downloads pieces of itself if there are any snags or malware detections during startup, Papkipos said. And since all applications are Web apps, they can't change a computer's OS configurations or hardware settings."
Supposed to be released sometime late 2010. Probably awesome for a netbook, but I was disappointed to find out this isn't really designed to be your main OS.
What do you guys think?
