What Next

Since Chrome OS is going to be an Open Source OS and that’s why other distributor will also come into market after the very first release. They might resolve the issues like ‘no option to save data/information on local disk’ and add some other functionalities in Chrome OS. But the best part of Chrome OS is that, it is extremely fast and made for for web addicts.

  • After watching their promotional video…. It made me think.
    Does the Os allow us to play songs and movies stored on our hdd.
    Or access any file from out USB pen drive ???

  • Honestly I feel that it wont be possible for Chrome OS to replace Windows., many linux distribution which are more features that Chrome OS and built with multiple features still find it hard to beat Windows. BTW can Chrome OS execute .exe files or are they similiar to Linux?

  • As you said, Google is likely to release this OS next year with limited yet good features. Who knows, it may challenge the giant microsoft in the near future. Because It’s Google! 😉

    I would like to share my article about Google Chrome OS:

    Chrome OS is Linux.

  • Hi Debu,
    In this dev preview, I didn’t find any way to access external data or local songs but may be in further development, Google will add option to do that. Since Chrome OS will be open source, other distributors will also join and release this OS with some additional feature.

  • Hi Ram,
    I totally agree with you but Google is going to release this OS because they want to take the market where people only uses web application and online resources on their computer. Now a days, lot many things are happening on web only, most of the time we stat browser as the first application and don’t care about local system. For .exe files, there will be restrictions as it is based on Suse linux but again you can execute those files with ‘wine’ or other application as we do on linux.

  • I am sure if additional features like … accessing local hard drives, using an office program offline, playing songs videos offline, etc…

    I am sure that GOS will become the most used free OS in the world… I think the time is coming soon….

  • I agree with you Debu.

  • I will surely give it a try. But i don’t know how it will give access to all our fav. applications ?

  • need to try this.. will our normal applications work with this OS?

  • Nice information. Thanks for sharing with screenshots.

  • Ya its cool … but without proper functioning of this OS with other applications … it’s usable for only small portion of peoples…

  • Nice post with screen-shots . Actually I was searching for content for my seminar report on Google Chrome OS.
    And I have collected few points from you too 😀 thanks
