Google Chrome OS
Google Chrome OS is an operating system that directly links in to web browser as soon as you press the ON button of the Chrome laptop. There is no wall paper or other documents that are stored in computer software. All of the documents or pictures are stored at the web browser that is called Google chrome cloud, so there is no problem even though your laptop is lost.
Who are the target customers?
The target customers of the Google Chrome Operating System is the net book users that spend most of their time on the web checking e-mails, searching for information, shopping and so on. And as most of the young people tend to be like this, Google Chrome OS is going to be more popular and widely utilized by those people in the future.
What Google Chrome OS differentiated from other operating systems?
<SIMPLICITY, SPEED, SECURITY >
These are the three strengths that Google has. If you use Google Chrome OS it will be much simpler to get in to internet and is much faster to start up and get you onto the web in a few seconds. In addition, as I said above, there will be no problem even though you lost your laptop or it broken down, because all of the data will be stored in the web browser, not in the hardware. Also Google completely redesigned the underlying security architecture of the OS so that users don't have to deal with viruses, malware and security updates.
Who are the competitors?
The biggest competitor of Google is Microsoft windows. For the moment, it doesn’t seem very threatening to Microsoft because the penetration rate of Google Chrome OS is not high as Microsoft. However, as soon as the weaknesses of Google (such as price of the Google Chrome-only hardware and the low compatibility) are settled, it will be big a match between two of the competitors. And, Microsoft could not help developing a new operating system that can stand against Google Chrome operating system.
