Google Open-Sources Chrome OS & Demos It On A Netbook

Google’s fabled OS has been released for open sourcing as the Chromium OS. By Google’s own admission, it’s “intended for people who spend most of their time on the web”, which seems like a long way to say ‘netbook users‘.

Enjoy some videos about the Chromium OS below.

At this morning’s announcement event, Google demoed the OS on a netbook. According to the speaker, the netbook goes from cold to usable in under 10 seconds, a number Google is working “very, very hard” to decrease.

Here’s the demo:

I’m excited.
