Google Announced Chrome Operating System

While the entertainment industry is still talking about Michael Jackson’s memorial, the tech world is rocked with the latest announcement made by Google:

“…today, we’re announcing a new project that’s a natural extension of Google Chrome — the Google Chrome Operating System. It’s our attempt to re-think what operating systems should be.”

Google Chrome OS is aimed at people who spend most of their time on the web and will initially be targeted at netbooks. They said that it will be extremely lightweight and fast just like the Chrome web browser, and it will be very secure.

As expected, Google Chrome OS will utilize the Linux kernel with a new windowing system on top of it.

With Google’s plan to release Chrome OS as open source software, should we be happy or sad?
