Forget Chromebooks: Chrome OS is Coming to Windows
Google didn’t announce any shiny new Chromebooks at Google I/O. Instead, they highlighted their two big “platforms” — Chrome and Android. Whether you’re using Windows, Linux, or Mac, Google will be bringing the Chrome OS experience to you.
Chrome has always been Google’s vision of the browser-as-operating-system. They’re about to take it to the next level, using Chrome to provide apps that run outside the browser on desktops and laptops. Google wants to slowly turn your Windows laptop into a Chromebook.
