Google Chrome OS heading for Release Candidate

Chrome

Google could release its Chrome operating system as early as next month, according to hints on the project's developer forums.

The Chrome developers are apparently close to completing a Release Candidate, with comments on bug fixing pages identifying a problem as being “only on the RC build” and naming the build as 0.9.78.1.

In discussions that follow, a Google employee states: “We will push this after 11 November.”

That would put a potential launch date almost exactly a year after Google announced plans to move into the operating system market.

The announcement shocked the IT world back then, but Google's credibility as an operating system distributor has gathered strength on the back of the success of its Android smartphone software that now accounts for one in three of smartphone sales, according to Nielsen research.

Orly?

"The announcement shocked the IT world back then(...)"

Did it? I thought it was absolutely obvious from the very moment Google for the first time vigorously denied working on an OS. Exactly like they did with the Chrome previously :>

Delayed shock

I for one am looking forward to Chromium, I think the shock referred to here is a delayed shock!

Delayed shock can manifest in physical or psychological symptoms that you don't always connect to the trigger event. An overactive nervous system might be responsible for raised blood pressure, palpitations or circulatory disturbances. By diverting energy away from digestion insufficient digestive enzymes are produced, causing indigestion, constipation or the ubiquitous 'irritable bowel syndrome'.
