Google Chrome OS set to launch this fall

The wait it almost over for Google Chrome OS. The operating system based on Google’s Chrome browser, hence the name, should be released for free this coming autumn.

Google expects big things from the launch, too. Google’s VP of product management stated “We expect it to reach millions of users on day one.” That just might happen — if there’s a hardware partner in place.

It’s not unreasonable to think that Google is current working with OEMs for a day-and-date hardware launch as well. There’s a good amount of curious users waiting for what they believe is the answer to the iPad. Hardware firms like Asus already publicly committed to Chrome OS. Maybe there’s a Chrome OS tablet in the works as well.

But no worries, the fall is right around the corner. The leaves will be changing colors and the new operating system will finally be available from the kind folks at Google.
