Chrome OS is Google's new operating system based on the Chromium open source project. Chrome OS shares many attributes of Google Apps and the Chrome browser. It's super fast, booting up in 8 seconds! Chrome OS is the world's simplest operating system - no blue screens of death or maintenance required, Chrome OS just keeps getting better without any work on your part. Chrome OS is also super secure using the principle of “defense in depth” to provide multiple layers of protection, including sandboxing, data encryption, and verified boot. Chrome OS devices, called Chromebooks, also come with built-in WiFi and 3G so you can always be connected. Chrome OS gives you fast, easy, secure, and mobile access to all your apps from mail to video conferencing and all the CRM, invoicing, and project management apps in between.
Speaking of getting better, Chrome OS devices have some nice new featuers headed their way including a window manager called Aura and a taskbar.
