Will Consumers Take a Shine to Google's Chrome OS?

Americans love chrome on motorcycles and toasters, but will average consumers take a shine to the Google Chrome operating system? Google announced its lightweight Chrome computer operating system today and says consumers can expect it by the end of 2010. Google describes the operating system as lean and mean and perfect for small Internet-friendly devices that are both easy-to-use and transport -- such as a netbook.

True, netbooks are very popular with consumers right now, but will they be in 2010 and can Google ride the netbooks' coattails into the heart of consumers?

The story is too old to be commented.
