Google Chrome OS is a project by Google Inc. announced on July 7, 2009. It's based on Google's Chrome web browser and the Linux kernel. It will initially be targeted at Netbooks, and is set to be released during the second half of 2010.

One day after the official announcement of Chrome OS, Google announced several partners, who would be developing devices with Chrome OS or supply components. The list displays a vast regional spread among PC vendors, from the world's largest PC maker, HP (Hewlett-Packard), Lenovo (China's biggest PC vendor), and two of Taiwan's top vendors, Acer and Asus (Noticeably absent was Dell).

Qualcomm, Texas Instruments, and Freescale, all makers of ARM-chips, were also named, as was Adobe, supposedly for support of Flash, without which a net-aware device would be of limited use. According to Google, this was merely a preliminary list, and many more cooperations are being discussed at the moment. Noticeably absent from this list were Intel and Dell.
