google chrome os(SURFCHROME.COM) - The Google OS was announced Tuesday evening as a new operating system aimed at the Netbook market. It started with the Google Chrome browser, but now Google is taking the fight directly to Microsoft with its new OS based on the Linux operating system.

The Chrome OS will be a free download vs. Microsoft Windows 7 which will cost netbook manufacturers $45 per unit system. This could significantly reduce the cost of a netbook on the Google Chrome OS.

The benefits claim for fast boot times and ease of use. Similar to the Chrome Browser, the OS will be optimized to use the Google applications for email, spreadsheets, analytics, and simply playing games right from the browser.
