Google Announces Chromium OS as OpenSource

Drinking the Kool-Aid
This latest announcement from Google must have old Schultzter so excited right now. You see his two biggest Geek passions are coming together: OpenSourse OSes and Google is what can only be described as the biggest Nerd Marriage Geeky Offspring ever. I’m sure he would have posted the video himself if he wasn’t chiseling away at the Kernel of his house to meet an end of the month deadline.

So what is so awesome and sexy about Chromium OS that every techie in the InterWebs is dubbing it the Kal-El of Operating Systems? Well for one ZERO boot time and no updates… ever.

Most of all, we are obsessed with speed. We are taking out every unnecessary process, optimizing many operations and running everything possible in parallel. This means you can go from turning on the computer to surfing the web in a few seconds. Our obsession with speed goes all the way down to the metal. We are specifying reference hardware components to create the fastest experience for Google Chrome OS.
