Google moves in on yet another market:
… Google has upped the ante yet again with its plans for a new operating system based on Google Chrome.
The new operating system, aptly named Google Chrome OS, will be an open-source operating system initially geared toward netbooks, Google announced in a blog posting late Tuesday evening.
What’s not all that clear in the news that’s out so far is that this is simply a new Linux distro. So it’s not really all that groundbreaking.
And what’s troubling about this announcement is, given that Google’s business model revolves around data-gathering and data-tracking (to feed their ad business), you can be sure this OS is going to monitor and track everything you do, instead of “just” monitoring what you do on Google.com and Google-related websites.
Simply a guess, but why else would they get into the OS business?
