Exclamation S.O.S. (Separate Operating System)

This should be sold as an separate operating system altogether so that users can install on their current computers and/or like devices.

It will be available as a downloadable Operating system that you can install on anything you like. It is part of Google's open initiative.

I think in the beginning they will probably keep it somewhat tightly controlled (like Android) in order to make sure its compatible, and they can resolve any bugs quickly for supported devices.

That is cool. I would love to be able to download their operating system to other machines. How much do you think it would cost just to download their operating system.

Is the idea of downloading an OS better than purchasing it without having to go online? I think for a start, Google will not really make it expensive.

Isn't the OS already available for free usage? Unless they make a premium version or something, it's not worth it.

The OS is exciting in itself, but I agree that until such a time that it has had some real usage by the masses keeping it working on a small subset of hardware is the best way to keep a steady level of performance.

I agree i want to try out the OS before i use it they should allow a virtual Online demo or something like that where it locks your desktop and only allows you to use chrome os !
