  1. 1. Do you feel Google Chrome will be a success?

    • No way, Microsoft's grasp will be unfazed by Chrome OS.

    • No way, it's time for Apple and OS X to rule.

    • No way, only a real Linux OS can rule the OS world.

    • An OS that you don't install anything on? If it cannot play games, it'll suck.

    • No, Google has gone too far this time. They should stick with search and email.

    • I don't like Google, so that'd be a big NO.

    • I'll only give it a try if I can run Firefox.

    • So, it is just an OS inside a browser? Lame!

    • Absolutely not. I'm still on dial-up, and the thought of a cloud based OS scares me!

    • A web based OS? Sounds great for my needs.

Last week Google's Chrome OS was finally unveiled. In short, it is a Linux distro that looks exactly like the Chrome web browser. You don't install anything to the system, instead everything is done online. Think of it as a cloud OS.

 

What do you think about it? Will it be a success? Will you give it a try? Do you even care? ;)

 

Enjoy the poll, and have a happy Thanksgiving!

Too many options!

 

I was looking for "I'll stick with what I've got, but it'll be great for a mobile device I may or may not purchase in the next 1-3 years"

 

:P

I voted:

It isn't for me, but it'll be great not to have to fix my "parent's/sibling's" computer anymore.

 

 

Now if they integrate Picasa into this people will still be able to maintain their digital imaging collection but be kept away from the horrors of Windows and Mac...

:lol:

But it isn't intended for mobile devices. ;) That role belongs to Android... which I still think two OS's is dumb.

But... What happens when you're in the bus? No internet, thus nothing. (Provided you don't have 3G)

Voted Maybe. It is still too early to tell.

 

There are still a lot of unanswered questions that I'd like to know about before I switch to a cloud OS like

 

Will they charge you a monthly fee to use your cloud?

How Google manages and secures your private data that they store in there web servers?

Will Google force you only to use there Web programs on the cloud?

What types of programs if any can you install on your cloud?

How much bandwidth will it require to run efficiently?

Will you able to play video games on your cloud?

What about support for power apps like VMware or Photoshop?

I'll probably play with it but as of right now I'm not too excited. Not having a completely local account isn't something I want.

I picked "No way, Microsoft's grasp will be unfazed by Chrome OS.", but I agree with SuchuLego. Chrome OS won't compete with Windows, it'll only be successful if it's adopted for mobile use.
