Google announced it will release its own operating system called Google Chrome OS. According to Google's announcement, the new operating system is Google's attempt to "re-think what operating systems should be." Google Chrome OS will be open source with an emphasis on "speed, simplicity and security." The project will be open-sourced later this year and netbooks with Google Chrome OS will be available the second half of 2010. Google Chrome OS is a separate project from Android, which is its mobile phone operating system, but will overlap in some areas.
