Plus it is online (cloud-based) not so much on your hard drive physically)


Chrome OS is an operating system designed by Google that is based on the Linux kernel and uses the Google Chrome web browser as its principal user interface. As a result, Chrome OS primarily supports web applications.


Google announced the project in July 2009, conceiving it as an operating system in which both applications and user data reside in the cloud: hence Chrome OS primarily runs web applications.

To me there is a marketing ploy to get a catchy name to grab some market share. I do think this market is the new battle ground over mid-sized screens from 6-10inch ie Android v Windows (Google v Microsoft)
My take on it is this: Microsoft was dominating the laptop & PC market, and took its eye off the ball when phones came along. Google pushed ahead and polished it's OS (Android) to become a real contender for bigger things.
So have a real choice of 2 powerful OS (operating systems) in this mid-sized market.
I pity our WT Society, now having to write our apps and Libraries in different formats, not knowing who will win.
I was enjoying having the WT DVD run on my Windows Mobile 6.5 phone years ago. But Microsoft lost the battle in the phone market, and Android became a major OS in the smartphone market.
End result: You can now buy a chromebook or tablet (with or without keyboard) or phablet, and run many (but not all - well not yet) PC based (MS Win 10) productivity tools.
Price, size, weight, battery life, GPU speed all factor in. Expect 3-5 years of life, then the landscape will have changed, and start again...
And there is Apple...
