The Chromebook has an operating system....Chrome OS. I am wondering if by your question you might be referring to "computer software", rather than an operating system??? As far as I know, ALL computers MUST have an operating system to operate. However, one of the neatest and most unique characteristics of the Chromebook is the absence of computer software that we have loaded on our computers, which not only clutters up our desktop and takes up huge amounts of hard drive but the software can also pose security risks if not regularly updated.
The Chromebook operates on the Chrome OS, is all about living on the web, using web apps, storing data in the clouds, speed, and security....just to name a few. And again,...eliminating our need for "bulky" and expensive computer software:)
