There has not been too much noise about the Chrome OS over the past few months and you can see why. Google CEO Eric Schmidt has revealed that the company is running behind schedule as far as the Chrome OS release is concerned. Consequently, we will not be seeing the release of any Chrome OS tablet or netbooks during the holiday shopping season. In fact, Schmidt has clarified that it will take “few months” before the new platform will make its public appearance.
Chrome OS will be Google’s answer to Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac OS X. The company already has a successful mobile platform in the Android and a successful foray into the desktop computing system may not be too damaging to the market shares of Windows or Mac immediately, but could quite easily kill the other popular open source OS – Linux.
Anyway, with this release getting delayed, we will have to wait for some more time before that could happen.
