Microsoft and Apple’s worst nightmare came true as several sources have confirmed that Google will be launching a cloud-based operating system sometime in the latter half of 2010.
The operating system will be a lightweight, virus free experience apparently run through possibly the Chrome browser which will allow all of Google’s current online tools like G-mail, Google Reader, Google Maps, and the Google Calender to be integrated into the experience.
This new Chrome OS, while similar in functionality to their Android OS on phones and netbooks, will be capable of working on Windows, Apple, and Linux computers using compatible widgets.
Perhaps it might even be possible to install this OS on your PS3. Imagine having all of your Google tools readily available if needed on your gaming console. This type of cloud-computing could completely change the way you game and even force Sony , Apple, and Microsoft to work more expediently on their own respective cloud services for their products.
