Details of the Google Chromium operating system have been sloshed around the internet since they were announced yesterday.
And, you’ll be happy to hear, I’m not going to repeat them.
However, watch the video below (taken from the Chromium website) and, in particular, the last few seconds. Do you see that boot time? And they’re looking at how to get it better. Superb.
One last thing to note – if you haven’t noticed already from some of the press releases – there’s no intention to release this as a package for people to update their existing PCs. Instead, Chromium OS will be supplied to hardware manufacturers for release on new products. This, apparently, is because Google are going to have a strict hardware policy (e.g. only solid state hard drives).
