Google to Rival Microsoft Windows with Chrome Operating System


Google recently previewed its Chrome operating system that operates on their new ‘Chromebook’ laptops.

The software is based largely on Google’s Chrome Web Browser.  The laptops will go on sale next month in a bid to challenge the dominance of the Windows operating system.

Google will make money from the operating system by selling monthly subscriptions, which include the software ready laptops and customer support, to corporate customers and large organizations.
