Chrome OS First Look
Last week, I was so busy to prepare my trip to Sydney and Canberra. Thus, I have not time to download the Chrome OS image file. Last night, finally, I got some free time to download the image from gdgt.
As Google said, that is a simple and fast OS. In vm environment with 1GB RAM, around 18 seconds for the bootup. And then, a simple blue login screen comes up. That is completely google, even the login is using Google accounts.
Chrome OS is an OS with a browser. There are no complex menu. In the first image, all icons are just links to the web apps.
Google Docs, Calendar and contacts are web apps, even the calculator is a web app. I have tried to disable the network connections. Then nothings works. So, Chrome OS needs to be on internet every second! Anyway, that is what it aims to be just a UI of Internet Cloud.
