Based on GNU/Linux no doubt.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/8139711.stm

A bit cheeky to say "We are completely redesigning the underlying security architecture of the OS so that users don't have to deal with viruses, malware and security updates."
By that I guess they mean: "we are using GNU/Linux code all the way and making it look Google-like"

But good news nonetheless though for FOSS!  Cheesy

it is the first really post web operating system, designed from the ground up, and reconceived for a web world

It looks like a completely new OS.

It will be Linux based, but possibly with different desktop to Gnome, KDE, XFCE etc. It will, of course, be almost exclusively cloud based, but no doubt there will be applications ported to it.
Very good news for Linux, but I am sure there will always be a place for quality distributions such as Pardus.

Many are not so sure Google OS will be a succes story:
http://www.slate.com/id/2222564/


I read a comment (in Youtube) about Google OS:

"Amazingly unimpressive.  Come to think of it pretty much everything other than search that has come from Google has been underwhelming. I'm amazed at how many Linux fanboys still worship Google even though they screwed them over by only developing Chrome for Windows. They probably had this planned and knew that running it on a real OS would be preferable to this dumbed down piece of crap. Google in the 2000s == Microsoft in the 1990s."

I agree its best to not have so much trust in Google.

In the end of this article it says Pardus will develope a own netbook version:

http://www.osor.eu/case_studies/a-new-kid-on-the-block-the-turkish-pardus-linux-distribution/?searchterm=pardus#section-18

  * a NetBook Remix is planned for subsequent releases, targeting a class of low-powered portable computers that has rapidly become popular in recent months.

Would be interesting to know if its thrue or not?

The article totally misses the point of the new OS. First, it's not for techis, it's for 98 % of the people. Second, it's not intended to replace traditional computers, it's an accessory device, like netbooks are.
I am pretty sure Chrome OS will introduce a paradigm shift in computers and will be a commercial success. A Chrome OS machine is the ideal computer for my mother who doesn't want to do system administration tasks at all and is always afraid of loosing her work on a machine or system failure.

As far as I understood there was already a  netbook remix of Pardus presented especially for the Cebit Asia 2009 exhibition a couple of weeks ago, but officially it has not been released.

The developers are currently putting priority to developing a business version of Pardus (also important) (Corporate edition).

I have a netbook with Windows XP. All Xandros version was  gone from the market when I bought it here in Sweden. And I have no special opinions about Google OS at the moment.
I prefeer to see the released version first before I judge it. But I suppose Linux in general can get a boost.
When more people try and get used with the system.

In my ordinary PC:s I use Pardus and Ubuntu. There I have no need for Windows anymore since about 2 years.
