Sources told TechCrunch that Google‘s Chrome OS has an early version launching next week. Early screenshots proved to be fake, and later screenshots depicted the browser component of the OS. Sources inside Google have said there’s more to Chrome OS than that.
One thing we know is that the browser in Chrome OS will be able to mount drives and function as a system navigation tool. How will hardware support be in these early builds? Although Google and device manufacturers are on the case writing drivers for your favorite peripherals, don’t count on all your devices working with Chrome OS right away.
The new OS will initially target netbooks with a particular aim to give Windows XP users something besides a crippled, expensive Windows 7 to upgrade. Now the question is that which computers will be able to run Chrome OS, it is guessed that Acer, Adobe, ASUS, Freescale, Hewlett-Packard, Lenovo, Qualcomm, Texas Instruments, and Toshiba will be able to run Google’s Chrome OS. But does it mean hardware or software from other companies won’t be compatible?
