“Tomorrow never die”. Google is still breathing and become stronger. Thats what people say, and I am quite agree with that. Recently Google has given a sign that they will come out soon with their new Android Operating System, which focusing on the Netbook product.

Google’s goal is to be the opposite of today’s operating systems — especially Windows, which commands 90% of the market. The ubiquitous software has a reputation as virus-prone and complicated. Google says its Google Chrome Operating System will be faster, smoother and lightweight.

An outgrowth of Google’s Chrome Internet browser, the OS is designed “to start up and get you onto the Web in a few seconds,” Google said in its official blog post announcing the product. Google says it can achieve that by building a system from the ground up, one that isn’t constrained by working with a legacy system initially built in the 1980s. Now, all it must to do is execute.

Unlike Windows, Chrome is an open-source project like the Linux operating system that’s popular with techies, which means outside software developers are welcome to work on it. And Google believes developers who have a stake in the project will find a way to bring Chrome to a wide variety of PCs quickly, says a person with direct knowledge of Google’s intentions, who isn’t authorized to speak on behalf of the company.

And the most interesting part is that the price will be free, comparing to Micrsoft which PC companies need to pay US45 for each license.

In a nutshell, We do hope that Google can be part of the open source team-partner and will explore more widely on the enhanced web browsing industry since the other partner, Linux, has shown their glory in the hacking world.
