Google To Launch Its Own Operating System | Google Challenges Microsoft

In a direct challenge to Microsoft, Google is expected to announce the launch of its own operating system for personal computer. And the operating system would be based on Google's Chrome browser.
The Chrome browser was released by Google last year, which it described as a tool for increasingly powerful Web programs, like Gmail, Google Docs and online applications created by other companies.

Since then, Google has been adding capabilities to Chrome, like the ability to allow it to run applications even when a user is not connected to the Internet, the news report said.

Facts About Google OS:
Google has also long promoted a vision of computing in which applications delivered over the Web play an increasingly central role, replacing software programs that run on the desktop. Such applications run directly inside an Internet browser, rather than atop an operating system, the traditional software that controls most of the operations of a personal computer.

Although Google has already developed an operating system called Android for mobile phones, that is also being used in notebooks by several manufacturers, the company does not encourage notebook makers to use it as an operating system.
US telecom carrier giant T-Mobile said last month the latest version of a touch-screen smartphone featuring Android would be available in August.
The Chrome-based operating system appears to be Google's preferred software for operating notebooks. However Google plans to put it in use for personal computer as well by second half of 2010.
Google's plan will be another clash between the Internet search king and software giant Microsoft. The Mountain View, California company was set to make the announcement on its blog later today.
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. Because we're already talking to partners about the project, and we'll soon be working with the open source community, we wanted to share our vision now so everyone understands what we are trying to achieve. - Google Blog

Microsoft's new search engine Bing was launched in a bid to hit back at Google's gains in the search market, but still lags behind its rival.

It is being seen as Google's answer in the highly competitive smartphone market to the newly released Apple iPhone 3GS, the Palm Pre and the latest Blackberrys.
