Google Enters OS Market for Real.

twitter writes "Here's more trouble for a beleaguered Microsoft, Google is launching Chrome OS for X86 and ARM computers.

The Chrome OS is being designed to power computers that range from small netbooks to full-size desktop machines. The Chrome OS is a direct attack against Microsofts lucrative — albeit vulnerable — Windows operating system. ... its no secret that Windows Vista was a nightmare ... The Chrome operating system [despite overlap] should not be confused with the Android operating system that the company launched for mobile devices.

Will this finally break M$'s OEM lock? Will the day soon be here when you can actually chose an OS?"
