A DigitalPoint Forums thread has a poll asking folks if they think if Google "will ever release a Disk Operating System?" By "disk" operating system, I assume he means a OS that runs native on your PC.
I personally don't think Google would go that far. I think they want to make an OS, in some sense, that runs off of the browser. Can a browser be an OS? Honestly, I do not know enough about computers to say if it is possible. There must be some basic kernel components to boot the box up. :-)
In any event, we had a few related topics discussed here in the past, they include:
- Google Developing An Internet Operating System? very detailed by Ben
- Google to Sell PCs with Own Operating System?
- Google Drive, GDrive, Platypus Coming Soon?
